The long, thin neck distinguishes it from the chunky Green-backed Heron. 34 TRICOLORED HERON 35 Egretta tricolor (Miiller) THLhisis normally a bird of coastal salt marshes, where I have seen it north to Maine. It is a rare straggler in Ontario. This is a strikingly beautiful smallish heron, with unstreaked white belly and white rump, contrasting with the dark slaty-blue upperparts. There is often a rusty red border to the white foreneck. The combination of dark blue, white and rusty red gave it its name tricolor.

The combination of dark blue, white and rusty red gave it its name tricolor. Note that the young Great Blue Heron has a whitish belly but it is heavily streaked and the bird itself is much larger and much paler than the Tricolored Heron. 36 CATTLE EGRET 37 Bubulcus ibis (Linnaeus) T Kis small, stocky egret is a recent newcomer from Africa, first reported in North America about 1941 in Florida, and in Ontario in 1956.

Distinguished from the Mute Swan by its black bill (orange in adult Mute Swans and dark purplish gray in young) and lack of knob on bill and straight "ramrod" neck posture. From the Tundra Swan it differs in having no yellow at base of bill (usually present in Tundra Swan) and in straight (not dished in) profile of bill and forehead.
