Little Blue Heron

During our recent Texas trip, we listed several immature Little Blue Herons. The first photo, taken on 10 August 2018, investigated the banks of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River in Denton County below the Lewisville Dam. The second hunted for minnows at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge in Tarrant County, Texas, on 11 August 2018. As they age, these white birds become dark blue. Rogers and Smith (2014) assure us that Little Blue Herons are opportunistic feeders, consuming small fish, amphibians, and aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates.
