Juvenile Heron?

Because they are little!

My parents called them Little Green Herons. I thought maybe the "little" was part of an older name that has since been changed. But if that's the case, I couldn't find anything online.

It seems like a perfectly reasonable name error given that it's a relative to the Little Blue Heron which has the "little" as part of its name, and this one is about the same size if not smaller to its aforementioned relative.  I suppose one could argue, however, that the only reason the Little Blue Heron name includes "little", is because it is needed to differentiate it from the "Great" Blue Heron...
