Ding Wildlife Refuge - Boxing Day 2016

We made a trip through the refuge this morning at low tide.  There was a gator in an area where we don't normally see them.  None of the birds seemed very concerned about him, though.  This was the first time I'd gotten a photo of a Black-Crowned Night Heron.  

There was a bit of a dust up over a shrimp.  Granted, it was a nice big shrimp, though!

And then . . . what goes around, comes around!!

The Yellow-Crowned Night Heron below stood perfectly still for his photo!

This Tri-Colored Heron below was busy fishing this morning!
