Thank you, Alandra, for your nice feedback. This was taken with my 80-400 lens. This bird was by itself, and I thought it might be a young one.

Hi Karen, this is the first time I've seen this, - not sure how I missed it earlier. It's wonderful, glad I finally saw it! Coincidence about your last comment, as I was just going to say, prior to reading that, that it looks so much like our great blue herons, that I started wondering if maybe ours are tri coloureds, LOL. I believe this one is a young heron, as it's very similar to the young ones we've been seeing lately.

Thank you, Robert, for your nice comment. I have to correct myself and change this to a blue heron. It does not have its breeding plumage and may actually be young.

Sharp photo in its natural habitat. Nice job.

Thank you for all your nice comments. This is called the Tricolored Heron. It ranges around the Gulf of Mexico and into Mexico.
