Tricolored Heron on the Hunt – This Tricolored Heron was the most photographic bird I had seen all day. He walked around his territory stopping once every few steps to search the surrounding water for something to eat.
During a February trip to South Florida with friends that included day trips to Everglades National Park, we took advantage of the opportunity to watch and photograph many of the resident birds. Our time in the Everglades was memorable and the many photographs we came home with will keep that memory around for some time to come.
Pa-hay-okee Trail – Everglades National Park – Our last stop of the day was at another boardwalk that wound around through Mahogany trees and a lot more. After clearing the hammock we came upon a Tricolored Heron who gave me plenty of good looks. I managed to make 71 photos of this fellow, but don’t worry not all were saved.
