Immature Little Blue Heron

We noticed this Immature Little Blue Heron working the shoreline looking for a meal at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. I was able to get a couple of images before it disappeared into the grasses. I was using a Canon 400mm f/4 DO lens with a Canon 1.4x Series III Teleconverter.

Then we found another Immature Little Blue Heron along the Wildlife Drive out in the open near the end of the Wildlife Drive. It had a cluttered looking background, but it was unusual for us to see Little Blue Herons there, especially Immature ones.

Immature Little Blue Heron

I was photographing a Great Egret by some sticks in the water. Then I noticed the other white bird was an Immature Little Blue Heron. It was fun to see there because you do not see too many in New Jersey, especially in Northern NJ..
