These birds may be fairly common up here, but he still looked cold to me.
The weather was decent today, but the birds seemed to still be bunched up together waiting for it to warm up. A small tricolor heron is in the middle of the egrets.
These were along the river by the Jupiter Lighthouse
I never realized how many different types of Heron's there are. We saw three just in the Royal Palms area today.
This was also at the Royal Palms nature walk area. We saw this bird, which wasn't very large, several Great Blue Herons, and a Tricolored Heron during the same walk.
There were quite a few of these on the Anhinga walk at the Royal Palms area.
While these were much smaller than the Great Blue Heron, they moved in a similar fashon and the family resemblance was obvious.
The small Heron on the left is not a baby, just a smaller species called a Tricolor Heron.
These are much smaller then the Great Blue Heron we'd been seeing.
This was at Hungtington Beach State Park. This Heron stayed close to the road, seemed to be quite used to people
