Red, Blue, and Yellow Herons at Matheson Park

The Bird A Day challenge continues with good birds after a stellar weekend of Antillean Nighthawk and Roseate Tern.  Today Andy called with a report of a Reddish Egret at Matheson Park.  I  rushed down there and saw it right before sunset.

I found with it some partners of Little Blue Heron and Yellow-crowned Night-Heron to make a colorful group of herons, at least in name.  The overcast sky makes all the birds look a little dull but trust me they put on a good show feeding in the wrack line.
