Tricolored Herons

(Taylor Creek Storm Water Management Center – Part 4 of 5)

I had no idea I’d have to take several posts just to share the variety of birds I photographed at Taylor Creek for two days, so many ops provided several great series, and then add all the lifers.  What a gem of a place!  I am still trying to get over there one more time before we leave end of this week.  Rains are in the forecast, so we shall see.

We have Tricolored Herons around the Chesapeake Bay area but they have always eluded my lens.  Guess it was meant to be I’d get this lifer in Florida.  In abundance no less, this species was everywhere at Taylor Creek.

The Tricolored Herons were posing….

Doing a little fishing……

Snagging a snack…..

Flying here and there…..

More fishing……

Fluffing up the feathers….

Hiding in the reeds….

And just overall, being a beauty to behold.

If I hadn’t been successful in scoring any decent photos of the Tricolored Heron, it would definitely have been my fault with so many of them there being a cooperative subject!

I going to try my darnedest to wrap up Taylor Creek visits in one more post, because I am still taking photos daily within the RV resort and have files of photos busting at the seams to review, and I know many to share.

As always, thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed!
