My first time to see a green heron in full breeding colors. Those legs were so bright orange/pink that they positively glowed. Normally they are yellow. During this time you can see why they are called green herons. The eyes were amazing too. They were very bright yellow with a red rim around them and purplish/blue color in front of the eye. Right across the creek from me & it kept striking poses. Don't know about the female green herons but I was sure impressed.
