The Little Blue Herons have moved in at the swamps in mass. At first the seemed to ignore their typical spots at the smaller rookery, leaving it to Night Herons and little Snowy Egrets.
This pair has settled on an island in the larger rookery. Sharing the spot with Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets. Considering their size maybe not the best idea.
Both birds have the breeding head plumage and blue beaks. They are almost iridescent in the right light.
Since these photographs were taken the smaller rookery now has a number of Little Blue nests.
