These Wrens are very secretive during breeding time. They usually sing from hidden places in the tall grasses. I was happy to get this one in the fall and on an open perch.

They used to be called "Short-billed Marsh Wrens"

The tricolored heron also know as the Louisiana Heron is a midsized member of the genus Egretta. This species can reach a length between 24-26 inches (61-66 centimeters) with a wingspan of approximately 36 inches (91 centimeters). The tricolored heron is named for its distinct coloration. It has a dark slate-blue colored head and upper body, a purple chest, and white underparts. This species also has a long, slender neck and bill, and is the only dark heron with light underparts.

Tricolored herons inhabit fresh and saltwater marshes, estuaries, mangrove swamps, lagoons, and river deltas.They can be found from Massachusetts, down through the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, to northern Brazil. Breeding sites can also be found on the Pacific Coast from Baja California down to Ecuador. Tricolored herons are widespread, permanent residents in Florida, although they are less common in some parts of the Panhandle.

I found this one on an overcast (cloudy) day at Joe Overstreet Landing, Lake Kissimmee, Florida.
