Tricolored Heron

The Tricolored Heron (Egretta tricolor), formerly known in North America as the Louisiana Heron, is a medium-sized heron with long legs, neck and a long pointed yellowish or grayish bill with a black tip. It is a resident breeder from the Gulf states of the United States and northern Mexico south through Central America and the Caribbean to central Brazil and Peru.
