July 12, 2016: Susan, Egret and Heron

Joanne asked me this morning the difference between a juvenile great blue heron and a white egret. I was not sure, as a juvenile great blue heron can apparently also be white (though I've not seen one). The egret has black legs and the heron has yellow legs from below.

Susan arrived about 30 min after I arrived.
