One of the many new Tricolored Herons that were born here this year.

As to the ID, note the light brown colored feathers. They indicate that this is an immature bird. When mature, these feathers will be more gray than brown.

Still it will have three colors, gray, brown, and white and thus the name Tricolored Heron.
