Tricolored heron coming in for a landing.
Tricolored herons sometimes act like reddish egrets. They seem to use their wings to shade the sun so they can see the fish better in the water. Or maybe he's just doing his eagle imitation.
Off he goes giving me a look as he flies by.
As I wandered around under the big trees, I looked up and saw this big thing staring at me. I don't see many red tailed hawks. We get a lot of red shouldered hawks.
As I crept around the big tree, he was watching my every move. I wandered off down the path but kept my eye on him for a while. He never moved. It was starting to get dark so maybe that was his sleeping spot.
