It’s always a surprise to see a wading bird in the water with their body in. This Little Blue Heron was taking a prolonged bath in water that was a bit murky.
He stood in one spot having a soak for at least ten minutes. I’m not sure if those bubbles were from his splashing that I missed or something else was in the water.
Then the action started:
Bathing can be hard on your coiffure.
Finally hopping out of the water for a big shake.
Then a peaceful rest at the edge of his personal bath tub.
