Tricolored Heron

While at the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge I found this Tricolored Heron fishing in a small lake. On the way back out of the area, he had moved and was standing on this log, so I took this image. It took me a while to figure out what brand of bird he was - he didn't quite match the pictures found in a couple books, but I did take a photo of a "Birds of Pelican Island" display up at the viewing platform at the end of the trail we took which matches this specimen quite well. It was nice of him to pose for me....
