The Little Blue Heron (Egretra caerulea) is an unusually quiet bird.
Here’s one being fed at Twin Rivers Park in a section of Port Salerno known as Rocky Point. The vid was taken on the boardwalk that you see top right in this aerial view.
And here’s a vid, taken in the same location, of a White Heron eating a piece of bait fed to him by a fisherman who was done for the day.
At first I thought it was a lesser Egret, also known as a yellow-billed Egret, but I would venture, after looking more closely, that it’s actually a Great Egret.
I added a snippet of Kamal’s Ripples to the audio track for dramatic effect.
