Waiting -Herons and Egrets seem to be very patient. After flying into the area this Tri-colored Heron simply stood around as though it was waiting for dinner to come to it. I watched and photographed the bird for several minutes before seeing any sort of movement indicating there may be some prey within striking distance.
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.
