Little Blue Heron and Great Egret


I am pretty sure this is a little blue heron.  It is darker and smaller than a great blue heron.


And this is a great egret.  Similar to the great blue heron but a bit smaller and nearly pure white.

Back to Connecticut for Thanksgiving.

I finally found an egret at Coombe but it was too far away to get a decent photograph. Yours is super.

Little or great, I love that heron. Beautiful shot. And what a great mix of the sleek egret and the grasses.

Beautiful! We have them too but I only see them once in a while.

How nice to be surrounded by this. We only get to see such birds if we go to the tropics.
