Juvenile Little Blue Heron: Wait For Me!

A juvenile Little Blue Heron learning to fly landed in a pine tree right above me when he veered away from the pond. I didn’t see the landing but it didn’t sound graceful as he flapped around.

He wasn’t sure what to do next and the adult that had been leading him down the pond had kept on going.

After a minute he figured out he’d been left behind and went off in the same direction as his parent and a sibling.

We don’t have as good a view of the Little Blue Herons learning to fly this summer because of the position of the nests but the glimpses we get are entertaining.
