Tricolored Herons were certainly plentiful on a recent trip to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Florida.  They can be found in many coastal wetland areas in the south and nest in trees and shrubs.  The Tricolored is a medium size heron, smaller than the Great Blue Heron, with a sleek and slim look.
