Little Blue Heron
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea)- Adult |
(for a white juvenile see my previous posting)
From my archives (vacation in Panama)
-The Snowy Egret tolerates the close proximity of white Little Blue Herons more than that of dark Little Blue Herons. A white Little Blue Heron catches more fish in the company of Snowy Egrets than when alone. This relationship may be one reason why young Little Blue Herons stay white for a year.
-Another advantage of white plumage is that young Little Blue Herons are more readily able to integrate into mixed-species flocks of white herons, thus gaining a measure of protection against predators.
