Tricolored Heron, Post Park

This morning, after kicking up some interesting waterfowl* at the ponds SW of town, Matt and I headed over to Post Park. I quickly lost myself in documenting some moths** that turned up at the light in the little shelter at the corner of the dance 'slab' and Matt promptly found a Tricolored Heron! I was able to get a few poorly lit shots of the 'trike' before we left it.

Tricolored Heron, Post Park, Brewster Co. 20 June 2013 -

* first = streaky, female-looking Gadwall... with black rump. So, male in not-quite-eclipse?
* second = male Redhead that had a very dark bill - nonbreeding, very distinctive

** likely our latest ever Apotolype brevicrista

Apotolype brevicrista - usually a visitor in March and early April!
