I hope you don't mind that I got the opinion of my local bird club president regarding the ID of this beauty. Here's what he said:
Color change stops half way down the neck, rather than the whole neck being
one color, light greenish legs vs dark legs. These field marks point
to.... Little Blue Heron....I did have to look it up in a couple of
books to be sure... BTW I wish I was there to make the field
observations. :)

I agree with your ID, but the beak is certainly more like that of a Little Blue...but those shaggy neck feathers are more like the Reddish.

About SunsetFL

SunsetFL

People change and so do profiles. It was April 2004 that I started my photgraphy journey that started with posting pics of a family of owls. I didn't have a clue what depth of field, aperture, or manual mode were. But you folks and my husband encouraged me and we documented the owls until the last baby fledged and left home. Left with a huge hole in my time and a larger hole in my heart I started to photograph other birds, animals and of course sunrises and sunsets. Photography is absolutely my passion and birds in flight and nesting experiences are among my favorites.Create your own visitor map!
