“See Anything?” “No, Not Yet”
Little Blue and Snowball were hunting this afternoon among the oyster beds in the salt marsh during low tide. The little blue heron was there first and perhaps the snowy egret thought the heron had found some hot fishing area so he decided to join the little blue.
They did have some success, and each ended up catching quite a few small minnows and shrimp. One interesting aspect of these birds is that little blue herons are all white as juveniles and look almost identical to snowy egrets.
