Tricolored Heron

Tricolored Heron

A Tricolored Heron was perched on one of the wooden trunks along an old rice field dike. I think he was waiting on the sun, as was I, but we were to be  disappointed until later in the morning.

When the sun did pop out I saw another Tricolored Heron doing a fly by.

These small herons are more apt to erratically fly in my experience, darting into the reeds or chasing each other. This one had somewhere else to get to and went by with a smooth, steady flight.
