Growing up at the zoo

I went back to the zoo in late June to see how the wild baby blue herons were doing. While most of them were almost all grown up, there were a few that had just been born.  All of these are young little blue herons, all from a few days old to 6 weeks old.  They will turn blue after their first full molt in about a year. The blue herons nest in the bushes over the alligator’s exhibit at the zoo. It’s funny to watch them at that crazy phase. The older ones were just starting to flap their wings.
