At this time of year, what used to be early evening light is now late afternoon light. But it’s still one of the nicest times to be out in the salt marsh area and having the chance to watch colorful birds such as these tricolored herons.
Here we have a juvenile flying back toward the tress perhaps to roost as his day may be coming to a close.
The adult however was not done fishing and has a nice catch to wind up his day. In both cases, it’s a nice time of year to be out there.
Well, there’s a little bird that will have a nice full stomach to sleep on! You have caught the colours on this favourite beautifully, Phil. Such lovely pictures!
How do you tell juveniles from adults? Is it the size or the colour of feathers? They look rather glamorous in this soft light.
