I took the dog for a walk the other day and brought my camera, poking around for a few birds.

According to Audubon.org…
On the southeastern coastal plain, the Tricolored Heron is a characteristic bird of quiet shallow waters. Strikingly slender, with long bill, neck, and legs, it is often seen wading belly-deep in coastal lagoons. Although it is solitary in its feeding, it is sociable in nesting, often in very large colonies with various other herons and egrets. Formerly known as Louisiana Heron.
It’s been hot and humid, no surprise in summertime Florida!
