Welcome back, Little Blue!

Little Blue Herons are arriving in force from their wintering grounds in the tropics. They have spiffed up for breeding season -- look at all the colors! And you thought they were simply blue!

This picture was taken at Lake Martin on 3/14. Though the herons have arrived, they seem to be later with courting and nesting this year. Stay tuned though -- they usually nest in the button bush which is closer to the road, so I may be able to get some good photographs.
