Tricolored herons (egretta tricolor), formerly known as the Louisianna heron, can be found in the coastal sub-tropical swamps of the southeastern United States, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, down to central Brazil and Peru in South America.

 

It is a medium sized slender heron measuring from 23.6" to 27.6" in length with a wingspan between 37.4" and 38" with a long slender neck and long orange yellowish-brown bill with a black tip.The long legs are yellow or orange as well as the feet.  The head, neck, back and upperwings are a blue-grey and a white line runs down the neck to a white belly. During breeding season the bill turns a bright blue and some white feathers extend from the back of the head.

Tricolored herons eat mostly small fish that they often chase and herd with open wings, sometimes looking like they are doing a crazy dance.

 

They build stick nests.

Title:  Foraging Tri-colored Heron

The yellow-crowned night heron (nyctanassa violacea) can be found from eastern southern Canada and the United States, inland as far as the midwest saltmarshes, down along the gulf coast into coastal Mexico, Central America, and northern South America as well as Cuba and the Caribbean in inland bottomland forests, swamps, shallow wetlands, wet fields, drainage ditches, coastal marshes, mangroves and barrier islands. The largest concentration is along the souther Arlantic coast of the United States.

 

It is a fairly small heron with a stocky body measuring from 21.7" to 27.6" in length,.a short thick neck, a thick black bill, red eyes, and short yellow legs. When the neck is extended, the head looks a little like a ball on a stick, when seen from the side. Slatey blue-grey overall, the feathers on their winjgs and back look shaggy. Their head is black with white stripes below the eyes and a light creamy yellow crown with long white plumes extending from the crown in breeding adults.The immature yellow-crowned night heron is brown with white spots on its back and wings with a streaky chest and belly.

The yellow-crowned night heron forages both day and night feeding mainly on crabs in a marine environment and crayfish in freshwater. It also eats earthworms, leeches, centipedes, snails, mussels, insects, frogs, fish, snakes and other small prey that comes within its reach.

 

They stalk their prey slowly in or near shallow water, standing on shore or a low branch over the water, usually alone. In saltwater environments they forage three hours before and after high tides. Breeding is usually dependent on the availability of crabs or crayfish and they usually nest in trees near or over the water.
