Avery Island's Jungle Gardens - pam-and-edmund-mcilhenny

Adult Little Blue Herons in breeding season have blue grey plumage except for their heads and necks, which are purplish. Their species is unusual in that juvenile Little Blue Herons are all white, and often prefer to mingle with Snowy Egrets, which are more tolerant of them than others of their own species are.
