Juvenile Little Blue Heron and Snowy Egret

Egretta caerulea Egretta thula

This photo shows the grayish bill of the heron and the blackish bill of the egret; also the greenish legs and feet of the heron. Even in stalking, the Little Blue Heron is poised and deliberate, unlike the frenetic Snowy Egret.
