Tricolored Heron

There were a couple dozen Tricolored Herons dotting the sides of the canal that opened into a small pond.  Some of them relocated as I approached.

Patient hunters, the Tricolored Herons will stare at the water a long time. This one had just stabbed the water for a fish creating a ripple.

As I walked further down the dike this one flew right over me, checking me out as he went.
