Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea)

Transitioning from first-year white plumage to adult blue. I love this calico stage they go through. When I first started birding, and I saw this blue and white mottled heron, I couldn't figure out what it was :)

Interesting that this one has a blue beak, indicating breeding, but it is a first year bird.

Snowy Egret (Egretta thula)

These egrets are so much fun to watch; aggressive and personable. This guy actively hunted all morning and was quite defensive of his space.

Sandhill Crane (Grus canadensis)

A pair of Sandhill Cranes performed a little bit of their mating dance for me last week. It was a little past prime photography hours so the light is a little rough, but I love this pose. What beautiful, beautiful birds these are.
