Wildlife Photography: Little Blue Heron



Little Blue Heron spotted at Jurong Bird Park
The Little Blue HeronEgretta caerulea, is a small heron. It breeds from the Gulf states of the USA through Central America and the Caribbean south to Peru and Uruguay



It is a resident breeder in most of its range, but some northern breeders migrate to the southeastern USA or beyond in winter. There is post-breeding dispersal to well north of the nesting range, as far as the border between the US and Canada. ~ Wikipedia

WORLD BIRD WEDNESDAY
EDIT:
Thanks for the correction, Larry! It is indeed a Little Blue Heron, not Great Blue Heron. :)

  5. Great photo! I am always thrilled when I get to see one on the water...there is one that sometimes flies alongside a local road (there is a water-filled ditch on the edge of the road), and it is quite a sight to look out your car window and see him flying along beside you!
