Yes, he is quite different from his larger blue (or grey) Heron cousin. But a treat nonetheless.Here's hoping you get to see one — up close and personal (via you camera) would be firstname.lastname@example.orgBears NotingLife in the Urban Forest (poetry)
The world is changing. Birds and other creatures are showing up where they weren't found before.
What a beauty -- really majestic -- you got a great shot!
come to Florida, they are every where, this one is truly beautiful... love the color of his head and neck
Great shot...and how exciting to come upon him!
What a beauty! I've never been able to get such a good close-up of one.
Love the pretty Little Blue! Great sighting, Terri! Have a happy weekend!
Wow! I've never seen one - it's a beauty!
No, I have never seen one of these Herons but you got a good shot of it.
What a surprise for you! Good shot! We have the Blue Herons around our pond and they are fun to watch.
i'm very jealous! i've never seen one in person!
Lovely shot of this beauty. I do love herons.
Lovely just look at the way they stand so still, ready to pounce .Great Shot!
...and they're quite an elusive bird. So, you did good spotting it!! They are indeed GORGEOUS. [they also go into a 'white morph'---all white, and then, they're very difficult to distinguish between the egret ---if you see a white 'egret'...make sure you check the color of the beak...it could very well be a little blue heron in white morph]
What a sight. Beautiful shot! :)
Excellent photo ~ Beautiful gem of nature ~ Happy Weekend to you ^_^
Sort of like a hotel room for a night. Great looking bird!
Gorgeous heron! I will have to check and see if they can be seen in our area.Have a blessed weekend Terri:)Blessings, Aimee
Gorgeous bird, Terri... I've only seen one from a distance before. You got a fabulous shot.Hugs,Betsy
What a great picture! He's a beauty! :)
Great capture! Wow.
Being from Florida, I am always surprised to see one of what we consider to be one our birds somewhere else. Really nice shot.
A nice find. I love watching them.
Oh that's a terrific capture!
Well, you've introduced me to a new bird with this post. I've never heard of a Little Blue Heron. At first, I thought you meant that it was a juvenile Great Blue Heron, but it looked too mature for that. So I looked it up. Very interesting.Thanks for your visit to my blog today. It's much appreciated.
So pretty ~ he must have long legs!! LOL!xo Catherine
For some odd reason, he reminds me of Buddy Epstein. lol. Sometimes, I don't understand my brain!
Great catch Terri... Michelle

Isn't it fun to see a new bird now and then? Nice catch.
