There are six types of herons in North America, the Great Blue Heron is the most abundant and widespread. From the smallest Green Heron to the night-herons, the more commonly found Black-crowned Night-Heron and
its southerly cousin the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron. The Tricolored Heron was once known as the Louisiana Heron and the Little
Blue Heron. All these birds can be fairly easy to find in the southeastern states especially within the wetlands of Florida.
