This afternoon we were watching this tricolored heron patiently fishing in the salt marsh. The little tri was really concentrating on catching a fish and I saw him strike at the water several times with no luck. The tide was coming in quickly now and the heron knew it had to act quickly or the water would get too high for a small wader such as him and he would be forced to move on.
Finally he hit the jackpot! On the last strike I saw him make, he came up with a good size fish, bigger then the tiny minnows it usually catches. So on this afternoon the patience and diligence of the tricolored paid off and he got himself a nice meal!
