Tricolored Heron

Pictured below are a series of pictures of a Tricolored Heron, formerly known as the Louisiana Heron that lives in Louisiana..

Left-Click on images to enlarge and see more detail.

With wings held high, this Tricolored Heron wades the shallows watching for the slightest movement in the water.

He detects movement in the water and freezes in his tracks. The Tricolored Heron pinpoints the precise location of his quarry. He is in luck. The fish is in range of his long neck and sharp beak.

Water splashes into the air as his s-curved neck snaps forward with l-i-g-h-t-n-i-n-g speed!

This expert fisherman is rewarded with a small minnow at the tip of his beak. Left-Click to Enlarge.

His stalking skills prevail a few minutes later. Note the minnow in his beak.

This Tri-Colored Heron certainly has some cool moves as he skulks the shallows for prey. They are entertaining and hilarious to watch.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures of this fine Heron species. :)
