    I like them! I would possible try and do some PP with the color balance. #4 is spot on. The others seem to have a brown tint to them.

    James,
    You've done an excellent job capturing the personalities and quirkiness of these guys. I love photographing these herons because they have so many looks.

    However, I agree with Michael that you should consider adjusting the white balance. I even feel that the white in #4 is a little too blown... maybe adjusting the exposure a little on 4 and 5?

    When the water is that yellowish brown color and the green folliage has a yellow tint to it, it's hard not to have the entire photo appear to have a yellow tint. Maybe try playing with Curves or manually adjusting the white balance to cut out some of that yellow tint.

    Overall, I think the composition is good and you've captured this guy very well!
