The adult Tricolored Heron remains at the same location above the Falls in Niagara Falls.

Once in Niagara Falls drive along the Niagara Parkway above the Falls to Dufferin Island.  Lots of tourists there at this time of the year and parking can be a real problem.  Go to the south entrance road to Dufferin Island and park here.  IT IS FREE.  Walk back across the Parkway towards the Falls and look for the small GATE HOUSE HYDRO building (less than a 5 minute walk). It is just south of the much larger old Toronto Hydro Building (sometimes called the Engineerium building).  There is a little parkette between these two buildings....walk along the NORTH side of Gate House building to the river edge.  Look for the park bench closest to this small building, the heron was opposite this bench feeding on small fish standing on some very close shoreline rocks.
