Great Blue Heron or Tricolored Heron?

Recommended Posts

Note the color and pattern (or lack thereof) of the crown, the color of the eyes, the color and pattern of the neck, the color of the legs, and the color and pattern of the bill. There are many, many differences between the two beside the very large difference in size. This is an adult Great Blue.

Did you mean Tricolored or LITTLE Blue Heron? This is definitely not a Great Blue Heron, but the leg color is more suited to Little Blue Heron. I think I can see a slight white crest on the bird, which would indicate Tricolored. May want to wait on more replies.
