Tricolor Fly And Fish
Yesterday afternoon we had this tricolor heron do a quick swoop into the salt marsh during low tide and he proceeded to zip around the whole area in search of a tasty snack of fresh minnows.
The colorful and active tri would hold up his wings and frantically go in all directions chasing the small elusive prey.
The little heron was a lot of fun to watch and he caught quite a few of his favorite fishy treats. He stayed there for almost half an hour and I suspect he was likely full judging by the amount of those fish he happily consumed.
Always exciting to have one of these guys running around because I know they can be counted on to produce a few photo ops.
