Little Blue Heron

Little Blue Heron, although rare, appears annually in Ontario. This bird was reported a couple of days ago from Long Point and has been seen in the pond by the Bird Studies Canada building in Port Rowan.

The species is white as a juvenile and blue as an adult. This bird is in between those plumages. The early morning backlit light made these images difficult but it is an interesting looking plumage, well worth a look

  3. Thanks for sharing. Last year I saw an adult at our pond here in Whitchurch-Stouffville (North of Markham).
