Herons on the fishing pier.

The beautiful and rare great blue heron/great egret hybrid that lives at Fort Desoto. Harry (as I call him) can usually be found at the gulf fishing pier. In the spring during mating season his face turns blue.

Harry is the size of a great egret which is smaller than the great blue heron behind him.
