Tricolored Heron – LSCMP

I got a call from Kevin Rysiewski a couple days ago to tell me that Tom Heatley had found a Tricolored Heron at LSCMP.. I was at work and figured that I would go and see it after work if it was still around… It wasn’t …. Tom found it again the next day and when I saw the pictures of it that Tom took that Alan Ryff posted, I was bummed out… Today I see a post on Facebook that a person saw it at 1100 am today… I called Tom and he was going to go there and see if he could find it for a third day… By the time I got to the park, Tom already had it in his scope… I love my Birding friends… Then as I go to pull out my camera, I discover that my battery is dead… After beating myself and chanting, “your so stupid”, I was offered a battery from Mike¬†Dziadosz… THANK YOU MIKE!! I OWE YOU ONE!!!….. We watched the Heron for quite awhile at a distance and it was not moving closer… we moved down to the mucky marsh and slowly made our way with in shooting distance… It was very brave… got some shots and when I left it was still feeding…
