Tricolored Heron

This afternoon we had a couple of tricolored herons come flying into the salt marsh where they spent their time fishing for tiny minnows.

I always enjoy seeing these colorful and active birds as they endlessly dart about the area in search of a meal.

  1. I love this heron and don’t see too many in my area. I keep looking though. I very much like your beautiful photos of it, especially the third one down.

    • Thanks Donna, we had three out there yesterday which was nice but even though they sort of hung around together they still snapped and squawked at each other. Funny birds. 😃

  2. So beautiful, and yes, especially the third one, reminds me of a beautiful painting or inscription on a coin…all are great, thanks Phil
