Green Heron

Green Heron

The other day while out birding near the ocean, I came across a pair of juvenile Green Herons.

You can identify them as juveniles because they have a striped neck and their coloring is browner and duller than the adults. Their feathers also look “fluffy.”

In this photo, it looks like one is expecting the other to feed him… but they are the same age or maybe he’s just looking to his sibling to come up with a plan for what they will do today, hahaha…

Here is another photo of a juvenile, this one looks like he might know how to feed himself…

Now this next photo is of an adult Green Heron. Notice the brown on the wings looks more gray and the feathers aren’t as fluffy…
