This Trip-colored Heron was spotted on Thursday, February 9, 2017, at the pond beside the Walmart parking lot on CR 466 in The Villages, FL.  This small pond is where I have photographed many wading birds in the last year, as well as a couple of small alligators (no alligators yesterday).  There also were ducks, a grebe, and a glorious Little Blue Heron.  I will share additional pictures of those other birds in coming posts.

This Trip-colored Heron flew in and was wading very close to where I was observing from the shoreline.  The bird was oblivious to my presence for about a minute and then I slowly backed away.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello,, the Tricolored Heron is gorgeous. One of my favorite herons. Great shots, always nice to see them. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

    • Hi Eileen, I had just about given up on that particular pond as very few birds had been there in many weeks and presto – a pond full of birds. I guess it happens that way at times. Interesting as it is right next to a super busy parking lot for Walmart. Glad you also enjoy the Trip-colored Herons. They are pretty birds. Have a great weekend!
