Recent rains have pretty much flooded the shorebird habitat at Briggs' Pond, but I was able to digiscope this cooperative juvenile Green Heron. He was working very hard at ridding himself of his natal down. I even managed a short video.
|If you look closely you can see his tongue sticking out. Also note all the down wrapped around his bill..|
|Feet are also useful in the process of getting rid of that itchy down.|
