This is a Tricolored Heron, walking through th Pluff Mud. I have seen birds, bigger than a Tricolored, get stuck in it. This is thick stuff.
People say Pluff is unique to the Lowcountry marshes. I can believe it. Think the worse low tide ever… not even close.
Pluff is hundreds of years of swamp / marsh ‘stuff’ sitting on the bottom of swamp water. Whew !!!
A bayou perfume.
