Walking a marsh dike I have avoided lately we came upon multiple Tricolored Herons in the brush.
When we came closer they scattered but not far. They kept finding a way to get back where they couldn’t see us. This may have been a nesting spot I didn’t know about.
I have not gone to any big marshes from this direction in months because the grass was very high, mosquitoes and ticks high. I guess we will need to plow through again soon.
