Immature Little Blue Heron
Little Blue Heron on its reflection. One of the first birds I encountered on Black Point Wildlife Drive at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Titusville, Florida, USA was this juvenile Little Blue Heron, still in its all white plumage. Though it is about the same size, and similar in color to a Snowy Egret, I don’t find them confusing as they such different shapes overall. The Snowy is slender and elegant. The immature Little Blue is more robust. To me the difference is obvious even at a distance, and certainly up close as in this photo. Sony Rx10iv at 560mm equivalent.
