BIG thank you, Dave Haenni!  What a day for witnessing the young!  From 
approximately 5PM to 8PM, I was mesmerized by the juvenile Tricolored 
Heron playing and foraging with juvenile Green Herons and a juvenile 
Snowy Egret.  During that time I was joined by one of Missouri's newest 
and most excited young birders, Tanner Caldwell (13 years old?  How old 
are you Tanner?), as well as Tanner's father in experiencing this.  Here 
are some photos and a video I promised Tanner.  (Chrissy was unable to 
join us due to illness, but she was there in spirit.  She'd called 
Tanner, informed him about the Tricolored Heron and encouraged him most 
strongly to meet up with me.  I think this was his first experience of a 
Tricolored Heron.  What a special time it was.)
