Tricolored Heron

A small slender heron, the Tricolored Heron has a long bill and neck with long blue plumes on the head and neck .  It forages alone by standing still in water, sometimes belly-deep, waiting for small fish, crustaceans and insects to approach.  Sometimes you will see them running in pursuit of a school of fish.
