Tri-colored Herons

DSC_5249

There are a few Tri-colored Herons living around the small park lakes in my area now.  I am delighted to see these beautiful medium-sized herons.  These wading birds hunt for aquatic snails, small fish, larger aquatic insects, tadpoles (pollywogs), frogs, and tender smaller turtles.

The Tri-colored Herons live near the water, and enjoy life here in Central Florida, on lakes, and in marshlands.  I took these pictures in Lake County, Florida on July 23, 2015, and again on July 27, 2015.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see a slightly larger version of that image.  Enjoy!
