I took this shot on 4/15/2014, the fourth week of the nesting season at the Audubon Society’s Smith Oaks Rookery in High Island, Texas. It was the first tricolored heron of the season that I spotted. Almost every square inch of available space had already been taken by cormorants, egrets and spoonbills. This latecomer was surveying the rookery to see if any choice spots still remained. Taken with the Nikon D4 and 800mm f5.6 Nikkor.
