A Gorgeous Tri-colored Heron

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!
