A short while after re-locating the Tri-colored Heron reported earlier, in the 
shallow ditch slightly east of original location, the bird flew north, into the 
marsh.  Continuing along Dune Rd, heading west, I stopped just west of Dolphin 
Lane, and saw a second Tri-colored Heron.  In comparing photos, one has a 
distinctive red eye and breeding white plum on back of head, while the first 
one had yellow eyes, no breeding plum and was a softer, more washed out 
brown/gray back of neck, back and wings.  
The second bird also flew north, into the Marsh.  Patience may be required to 
relocated either or both birds.
Photos of both are being added to my eBird submission.
