Little Blue Heron Photos

Little Blue Herons have very different plumages as juveniles than they do as adults.  Juvenile birds are all-white in plumage, while adults acquire the dark, slate-blue plumage.  Adult birds in breeding plumage start to get bluish-red feathers on their neck and heads.  There are photos of all plumages of Little Blue Herons below.
