On the southeastern coastal plain, the Tricolored Heron - Egretta tricolor; is a characteristic bird of quite shallow waters. Strikingly slender, with long bill, neck and legs, it is often seen wading belly-deep in coastal lagoons. Although it is solitary in its feeding, it is sociable in nesting, often in very large colonies with various other herons and egrets.

As usual we moved about carefully but the tourists just walked up to it. .
