5/4 at Hammo:
I believe the Tricolored Heron being reported at the “micro-marsh” between the two parking lots behind the Nature Center (seen easily from the blind) is actually the Tricolored x Blue Heron hybrid that was first reported by Mark Santyr.  It has many breeding Tricolored features, but has a shorter all-dark neck and greenish legs consistent with Little Blue.
