An immature Tricolored Heron.

When I first saw this bird I thought it was just resting on one leg as they often do.

Then I noticed the strange way it was holding it's raised foot and that there was a drop of blood on one of it's toes.

But the wound didn't seem serious and the bird seemed to be ok.
