Tweener Hard At Work
Early this morning we had a ‘tweener’ out grabbing some breakfast in the marsh.
The ‘tweener’ is one of my all time favorite bird phases. This is a little blue heron that is transitioning from an all white juvenile to a mostly all blue (with a touch of maroon) adult.
These birds are always fun with their varied, almost checkerboard sections of blue and grey randomly placed throughout their body.
This little guy caught himself a little snack after a very stealthy approach with an impressive technique. He must have been paying attention when his mom was teaching minnow snatching. 🙂
