Dancing And Prancing In The Marsh
Yesterday morning we were tremendously entertained by this tricolored heron that was performing a routine in the marsh pond. He was sticking his wings up and running all around presumably hunting for food but I never saw him actually catch anything, he seemed to be more interested in putting on a display for everyone. Naturally our friend Mr. Alligator was in the audience and enjoying the show, although he appeared less then impressed. It takes quite a lot to impress an alligator so I’m sure the tricolored was not disappointed in the lack of reaction. Often, no reaction from an alligator is a good thing anyway from the perspective of the small waders!
Finally the little tri settled down and wandered off along the edge of the pond to continue his hunt for breakfast with a much calmer approach.
