Little Blue Heron is here now. Saw it at 8:40 in the creek just opposite batting cages. Looked for 1 1/2 hours and finally found it, right where it was seen yesterday. Foraging w Snowy Egrets.

I expected the Little Blue to be south of the Alton bridge so made a beeline for there. No heron there so I worked back upstream and found the Little Blue Heron with the former herd. Should have looked closer, but I needed the exercise so no complaints. I got numerous photos and posted two interesting ones in the "Waders" Album. Nice size comparison with Snowy Egret and White-faced Ibis.
