Share Your Best Photo of the Day


Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

Nice photo! That is actually a Little Blue Heron.

OK - I think I'm going to officially give up the Heron guessing game, and post in the ID forum every time. ?

Help me please.  I see three colors here, purple, blue, and white, so I assumed it was a Tricolored Heron.  What makes this clearly a Little Blue Heron?

Little Blues can sometimes show contrasting purple on the neck. This is a Little Blue Heron because it lacks plumes, whereas Tricolored has plumes, and because it shows a think bill and greenish legs. Tricolored is also more plumed over all.

Don't worry, you'll get better at heron identification overall. Although what can I say, I've only seen three species of heron and for some reason am already trying to help people identify herons.
