This Little Blue Heron was seen this past Sunday at Chincoteague National Seashore and wildlife refuge.
The Little Blue Heron is similiar in size to the Snowy Egret but has a heavier bill. The bill is bicolored. It's deep blue body contrasts with the maroon head. This heron has black legs and feet. It stalks prey slowly and prefers shallow fresh water.
