At Hammo today and saw two of the Tricolored Herons that have Little Blue
Heron - like white panels in the wings and other characters consistent with
Little Blue Heron.  Though at a very great distance, there appeared to be
more blue feathering in what should be white on Tricolored on one of the
birds.  This is the first time this year I have seen more than one bird.  As
usual, an adult Little Blue Heron was in the same area and was, as usual,
the target of these birds aggressive attention.  The birds were well out in
the marsh east of the Nature Center parking area.
