White Bird - Immature Little Blue Heron

When I cropped this photo to focus on the bird the color saturation thing made the legs more green than yellow. The only white egret or heron that I can find with legs like this is the Immature Little Blue Heron. He is probably 1-1/2 to 2 feet tall. I took this photo around 9:30 this morning. It is a beautiful sunny day out, and now at 10:30 the weather.com site it saying it is 80 degree.

Kingfisher Pair Eating!

A tree fell in the creek directly across from our steps that lead down the the creek. It seems to be a new popular spot for the birds, especially the pair of Kingfishers. Recently I saw three kingfishers. One seems to have been chased off though. Here is a shot of the pair, one with a fish in it's mouth. And then a shot of it tossing it so it can reposition it to swallow it down. He or She didn't chew! Just swallowed it whole!
