Not sure what you mean here but if these were the birds with the copious
amounts of admixed white and the little blue like bill shapes, I think
calling them pure Tricolored is premature.

10/06/11: Madison, Hammonasset Beach State Park, 5:30 to 6:00 pm-2 GOLDEN
PLOVER in the grassy lot south of the road towards west beach, plus 3 more
GOLDEN PLOVER  with about 12 Black-bellied Plover, 10 Dunlin, and 1
WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER in the Nature Center grassy lot.  These birds were
buzzed repeatedly by two Merlin simultaneously (they came away empty, at
least while I was watching).  Also, 2 juvenile TRICOLORED HERON (vs.
Tricolored/Little Blue hybrids as previously suggested) in the small pond by
the Meig's Point parking lot.
