Little Blue Heron Timber Greens FL. Living on the golf course at Timber Greens which means we get to see lots of creatures; gators, deer, hawks, and many different birds. There’s a small off-shoot of the Withlacoochee River running in back of the golf course so we have water birds too. (I suppose I should call it a water hazard not an offshoot.)
Little Blue Heron Timber Greens FL
This Little Blue Heron was wandering around on a bush outside the window looking for lizard or bug snacks. The bush surrounds our air conditioning unit and I was concerned that the unit would come on and scare the feathers off him; so I reset the temperature to keep it from coming on. He just wandered happily around: finally posing on the unit itself giving me a great photo op. He really enjoyed his time dancing around there although I didn’t see him find any snacks.
Little Blue Herons stand about 24″ tall (Great Blues are about 4ft); they are a very pretty slate blue with deep maroon-brown necks, long bills that ware gray with black tips. They feed on fish, frogs, mice, insects and lizards. We have several that hang around our pond, they are very territorial and chase each other away. They don’t eat seeds or bread.
They do make the oddest noise when they are chasing another bird like an egret or Little Blue Heron away from their territory.
I think my Little Blue Heron is such a cute guy (or girl).
