Little Blue X Tricolored Heron Hybrid


(Egetta caerulea X Egretta tricolor)

There are a few known instances of hybridization between similar heron species. This bird has been resident at Hammonasset State Park in Madison, CT for the past five seasons. At first glance it has the overall look of a Little Blue Heron, but with yellow on its face and scattered white on the body.
