Little Blue Heron

Foot Loose Little Blue Herons

The juvenile Little Blue Heron are more mobile, but most of them still weren’t flying on this day about a week ago. They are venturing further away from their nests and their feet were in full view.

As I developed these photographs I noticed how many ways they use those feet, often digging their nails in for support or to climb a branch.

Head on shots of birds rarely look like much, but in this one the Little Blue’s feet are nicely lined up and show off how long his nails are.

They don’t need a very big branch to hang on to.

As we were leaving the rookery this adult Little Blue landed above us giving another foot view.
