Mark,
The bird that was pointed out to me as a Tricolored Heron at Hammonasset on Sunday fits your description perfectly. I reported to eBird as a hybrid. I did see a good Tricolored at Long Cove in Guilford later that day.

Also the thighs are paler than the belly. If there isca bird with the distinct tricolored look of a Tricolored Heron, it is either a Tricolored or a new hybrid young.
