The two likely Tricolored X Little Blue Herons were in the marsh to the east of the nature center this morning. A white plumaged juv Little Blue was at the Swan Pond and allowed nice comparison of bill structure to the other two birds. The two likely hybrids are very similar to each other in plumage and structure and still remarkably different in color and bill structure compared to typical Tricolored In today's wind, white feathering could be seen mixed into the back of each bird when lifted by the gusts.
