Juvenile Green Heron

This juvenile Green Heron was just sitting in the water. He eventually splashed a little, but he seemed content just to be wet on this hot June day.

This pool is part of a pond / fountain system of moving water in a Charleston city park. This tree is at the edge of a small island in the pond that houses a Green Heron rookery. The water is cloudy so you can’t see bottom to tell what color it might be painted but may be the cause of the odd color.

The heron eventually climbed out of the water and shook off before settling down in the shade.

    1. Gotta love that fuzzy head. They are, the few adults we saw that day were well tucked under the overhanging branches. It’s kind of surprising they set up here, in the middle of Hampton Park, which can be a pretty busy place.
