In addition to a nice fallout on Willard's Island, I saw and  
photographed what looks like a hybrid Little Blue x Tri-colored Heron  
this morning in the Meig's Point pond. Overall, more mottled looking  
than LBH with white feathers in the under wing, very long two-tone  
bill and dull yellowish legs. It landed near 2 LBHs and then was  
chased away by one of them. I will try to post some pix tonight.
