Little Herons

Little Green Heron

Yesterday, we walked in Forest Park. No owls, but we did see two new birds, at least new for this season. Pictured is a Little Green Heron that Anne snapped. This is the first time this year that we’ve seen one in the park. They are pretty common in Forest Park. It’s good to see that they’ve come back. We also saw a Little Blue Heron, which is pretty rare in the park. I’ve only ever seen one in the park two other times. It got flushed from under a bridge, when a noisy dump truck rumbled over the bridge and it and an egret flew away before we could get a good picture of it. Anne got seventeen species for the day.
