Little Blue Heron

Another oceanside bird at Ensenada Lodge on 8 July was a Little Blue Heron. I have previously posted in this blog: “Little Blue Herons come in all-white and all-dark plumages. Little Blue Herons are unique among herons in that these plumages are correlated with the age of the bird. Young are white, older birds are dark. A white young bird molting into its dark adult plumage is sometimes called a Calico Heron.”
