A medium-sized, slender heron of the southeastern United States, the Tricolored Heron was formerly known as the Louisiana Heron.
Green Cay, FL
It actually looks like an adult tricolor to me.
Thanks Bill! My other slight concern was it was quite a bit bigger than this guy http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/114...
Thanks gatorfellows! I've checked out photos of juveniles of both species & this guy doesn't seem to match either so I'm not really sure what he is!
Karen, it sure looks like a tri-colored night heron to me.
Juvenile little blue herons have the bill markings of the dark tip and bluish grayish color, but tricolor have yellow on the lower bill. good luck
