This bird just would not move. He was planted in this sunny spot. The Tricolored is one of the prettiest herons. At 2 feet (61 cm) it is a small heron and one of the more hospitable.
It’s not uncommon to find these Tricolors fishing along side a Snowy Egret. A Snowy will scrap with each other all the time, but hang round with Tricolors.
I was hoping for an in flight photograph to catch all the color but that was not happening.
