Great Blue Heron/Great White Egret Hybrid | Jacob Qualls Photography

Great Blue Hybrid

Meet the Great Blue Heron/White Morph Reddish Egret Hybrid. He has all the crazy mannerisms of a Reddish Egret, the stature of a Great Blue Heron, and is a creature all on his own.
This specific time of year - March - is breeding season for the birds in Florida, and this Hybrid was no different - though there was no elegant plumage typically associated with breeding season, you can tell by the Lore - in that fantastic Cyber Blue/Purple color.
