Yes, one and two are Juvenile Yellow Crowned Night Herons

Nice shot of the Green one as well.

I shoot with a very good, carbon monopode. It weighs almost nothing, and often enough I just shoot handheld, monopode and camera. I use no head - a head weighs more then the monopode.

It takes getting used to...:lol:

Hi bobbyz,DBB,bmullen, I appreciate your time and coments. I really like the challenge of photographing birds....although I must admit butterflies are fun too. I hope that I am not making myself a pest by asking you all to help me identify some of these birds. I have several books but some of the young'uns aren't in them.....and I now realize that birds can be different colors in different seasons. I appreciate your constructive criticism......most of y'alls pictures are awesome!!!! bentleysmom

Fantastic shots, especially the first one. You need to shoot birds more often. I'd say that the one hiding in the bushes was the mom? But I'll let the experts on ident carry this one.

No, it's a juvenal. Both the Immatures, who look completely different and the Adults, once again totally different, are solid colored, not that the color is all alike, both back and front, head and body differ, but there are no irregular patches.

Beautiful shots! I especially love the one legged guy. He has a rather humerous look about him, which makes you want to pay him some attention.
