Nature in Florida - The Little Blue Heron - New Port Richey-Florida

Nature in Florida - The Little Blue Heron - New Port Richey-Florida

This Little Blue Heron loves walking around on our bushes in Timber Greens looking for lizards (anoles) to eat. He takes delicate steps and looks all around and it’s fun to watch him anticipate which way the lizard will go. He waves his head from side to side - I used to think that he was hypnotizing the lizard but realized that he is actually turning his head to see better since he doesn’t have binocular vision.

Little Blue Herons are the smaller version of Great Blues: Great Blues stand a majestic 42-52”, Little Blues only reach 24”. Maybe standing on the bush makes him feel taller.

Despite their lack of height, they are beautiful birds with a slate blue body color and a purplish head. Peterson Field Guide of Eastern Birds calls it a Maroon-brown but Isay purple.

They hang out in the pond and are very territorial-they will chase other Little Blues (and other birds) away. If you hear a kind of crunk noise-that's them threatening the others away. Little Blue Herons have a pale, bluish bill tipped in black, and it's sharp.
