If you mean Tri-colored Herons, I believe they are larger and have yellow beaks and legs. I am not an expert, someone correct me if I am wrong. Photo of Tri-colored Heron attached.

I have seen them with blue bills, and lighter legs, The Audubon field guide shows them with blue bill. The colors could change if they are in breeding plummage.

These are really good, I love them all. They are so good that they are intimidating - I saw a Great Egret Saturday and got several pictures of him. I thought they were pretty good for the distance, and thought about posting of them. However, none of them could hold a candle to these!

Variation again, this time seasonal. The white underparts and white head plumes mark it as a Tricolor. The bill color changes from yellow to blue in the breeding season. :?

Very nice pictures, anyway - and that's what counts.

You are correct about Tri-color Herons. I have looked on a few sights and seen photos with both colors of bill. Anything to confuse the issue for us amatures.

I believe this would be a Little Blue Heron, No guarantee though.
