Good Sunday Morning, Very cute photos. Looks like the juveniles are having bad hair days! LOLI've never seen these before and really enjoyed you sharing.
The word is spreading in birdworld: Tex's pond is the place to party.
too cute. they are all fuzzy headed. (:
Cute babies! Have a lovely Sunday.Best wishes Molly
very impressive; great snapshots!
I can relate to that... Cuties
Dorosły ptak wygląda dostojnie, ale młode są zabawne prze sterczące piórka na głowie. Pozdrawiam.Adult bird looks dignified, but the young are fun FOR IN sticking feathers on the head. Yours.
he looks like a worn out parent to me
Magrinhos, despenteados, mesmo assim, lindos! beijos,chica
I don't know where that long neck goes when they hunch down!
Oh I LOVE those little ones....they look a little scraggly - just as they should :)
Great pictures - beautiful birds. Think it's the first time I see these. Enjoy your Sunday!
Er schaut sehr lustig aus...Lieben GrußCL
wow, now I know where the saying, "bird legs" came from.These little cuties do have long, skinny legs.
You have some amazing birds in your neck of the woods.
Honey, lissen ta me. Ya got ya fadda's looks, so you're gonna have ta get a job.
Amazing the changes from juvenile to older . . . the blues will be more vibrant in time . . .MP says it best . . . The word is out, you got it going on at the Tex pond . . .
They look like juveniles, don't they? All gawky and not grown into their legs. And they're going to be made fun of at school with that sad hair! :-) But there's some promise there for a future handsome bird.
So sun to see them in both stages of life. Great shots.
I am truly in awe!!!! Love these...they're so cute.Stunning!!! I noticed you left me a comment on this week's birding photo meme, but you didn't add a direct link from the 'linky tools' I don't know if you have problems adding a link, or if you choose not to, or what reason, but if you are having problems, I would certainly be more than happy to add your post link from there if you would like.Just saying....Have a wonderful Sunday. You know I always enjoy your blog posts!!!!
They have a funny expression
The first juvenile looks like she needs hunting lessons.
Once again Tex..You show us photos of these amazing Heron's.. I am not familiar at all with the bird, although I have seen some, i cannot tell the difference.This one is called the Yellow crested. I notice that its head is blue.You are so lucky to have such an abundance of wild life and beautiful birds in your area.thanks for sharing these lovely photosHappy Sunday val
Very beautiful photos.
Great shots of those juvies! They definitely look more "unfinished", don't they?
A couple scrawny looking characters but I like their jaunty little cap.
Goodness they are too stinkin' cute!
They are beautiful, like the colour and the pattern..
Very amazing shots.Hanne Bente
Look how scraggly and cute they are.
Great photos!!! Would love for you to link up to my linky party..Farm Photo Friday!! Happy Sunday to you!
nice shots, you capture a lovely bird in a good scenario
Patient little fellows!!!V
How can a bird look like a teenager? But those youngsters do, looking all gangly I guess. :-)
great pics. those juveniles look a little ragged. the adult is a handsome bird though.
Interesting compositions on the pretty birds! The young ones are cute.
wow...nice capture...Like the white spots on the kids!
Going through a bit of an awkward stage! Very cute.
✿彡º°♫♪º°Nunca vi uma garça azul, somente brancas. Muito bonitas.Boa semana, amiga!Beijinhos.Brasil♫♪♪¸.•°`❤彡
I love how juveniles always seem to have spots
They sure are interesting birds and there is one there that looks like his hair is just a mess! LOL
What a lovely little Heron.. your images are fantastic.Nothing like it over here.
You have the most wonderful wildlife visitors at your pond. Lucky you! It's fun to view these Yellow-crowned Night Herons.
You see the most wonderful things. I love your photos, especially the bird ones.
Beautiful photos of herons.Rarely do I watch these lovely birds.Excellent pictures.Lucia
Great bird shots as always! Glad to know birds have "bad feather" days like I have bad hair days!!
it's amazing how they can be both graceful and comicalgreat shots
A fine series of this elegant bird. You show us all the sides of the bird which lets us see the variation in feather patterns. Very well done.
Oh they're so cute. How I love herons. You must have been so charmed to have some time with this family.
You certainly get some good visitors.
this is a lovely heron. I saw one adult when I visited CostaRica. Nice to see juveniles.
Love the comparison of the juveniles and their escort. Nice.
great photos of the Herons,they sure like your place T.peter
Hi Theresa, Excellent photographs! Exciting to see juvenile herons. I never have seen any babies or juveniles at all. You got a rare glimpse into heron family life. Have an outstanding coming week!
It looks like they had a hard trip. Lovely shots.
They look a tad bit unsure of themselves.
They certainly look like they've reached "that gangly stage."
Uh, someday they will be pretty birds, doncha think?You are lucky to live where you do, and have all this interesting bird life come and visit. Once in a blue moon I might see a woodpecker, once a pileated one.But I live in town so if I want to see all these other goodies, I have to travel or wait for something and hope I see it when it comes.Cheers, Tex!Jo
After admiring the first picture, I scrolled down and the first thing out of my mouth was "Eke!" It does take them a while to mature, doesn't it?
Just look at those long legs. Great photos my friend. Hugs~
Buena serie de imágenes de este flaco equilibrista.Saludos desde España
Ha! That young one looks bedraggled and scraggly in the second shot. At least it will grow out of it. (wish I could saw that about me)
That pond of yours is the best! All the birds that are attracted to it and then get photographed for all of us to enjoy. It looks like they are really concentrating on balancing.
I tried to comment earlier...can't even remember what I said...but I do love those scraggly juveniles!
Gotta love those young ones and their plumage.
Beautiful birds, superb photos.
Dearest Theresa,Those juveniles look really cute and still a bit 'face-less'. The older one has such a funny 'antenna' and looks like not quite being adult him/herself.Hugs to you,Mariette
Cute little guys! In a couple of shots they look like they are walking on a balance beam.
Great photos of the herons and the juveniles are cute.
The babies are so cute~ what is that thing on the adults head that slicks back????
Wow. I'd love to run around your ranch!!!!I just started blogging again and decided to take today to look around. So glad I stopped here. I will certainly follow and be back!
Love the scruffy, messed teenager hair on top of their heads!
T, great shots of old nobby knees and his kids!
I do wonder if this is the heron I saw up the trees this past year. Because these juveniles look like the one I saw....but then again.....Very cool!
They do look a bit like awkward teenagers don't they :)
They are a tad scrawny as youngsters, T! I like "substance" in my critters...as the Pres says "put some meat on them bones"...:)JP
Cool sighting of the juvies! They are beautiful birds and very neat to have them on your property. Great shots!
Needing a little space from youth isn't just limited to birds, is it? :-)) Great shots!!
Love those juvies! I wonder if we have night herons up this way. I'll have to check.
I'm sorry but that is one ugly bird.
These are great, girl! Love the spikey hair-dos on the juvies!
Talk about skinny legs!!
haha, lanky and in desperate need of some grooming!!
Punk rock hair and skinny legs. They must be all the rage at the pond :)
You didn't let them comb their hair before the photo shoot - tsk, tsk....:)Great shots!
These fellows sure have character!
Great nature watch...
I agree they are cute.
Oh, those little ones look a bit scrawny, don't they? But I love the muted colors.Sorry I haven't visited lately: you'll understand why in tomorrow's post! ;)
I'm a big fan of the older and wiser! Wonder why?
"the older escort..." ha! He did look a little put out. The juvies are so straggly looking. They seem to like your metal fence railing. Great photo opps for you!
Have never seen juveniles before! Thanks - such nice shots Aloha from Honolulu,Wishing you a sweet week ahead!Comfort Spiral =^..^= > < } } ( ° > > < } } (°> ><}}(°>
Hello, once again great pictures. Love the juveniles, kinda cute in their own way, smile. Blessings Francine.
I am a bird watcher, never seen or heard of this one! I love that bluish color, the wild hair on top. Sometimes I wake up looking like this bird. Love that you posted, the Yellow Crowned Night Heron.
.... it looks so gangly and awkward. So very sweet.
they are beautiful! It looks like the beaks are blue...so cool! I bet he or she is tired. Youngsters can do that to you. :)you really have some of the best visitors!
Dearest Theresa,Oh,Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron! I never knew this bird. I learn aand enjoy about birds and nature through your blog♡♡♡ Haha, I loved the way you said that the older one probably exhausted by his younger charges(*^_^*)Lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
Nice set of pictures. They are not an elegant looking bird in their youth!Stewart M
I love those l-o-n-g legs!
One of the young ones looked like it had a bit of bed head going on. :o)
Fantastic series!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Ooo - these are fabulous shots!
So wonderful shots and Reiher!♥Crissi♥
The heron brought you to your family for us to see :))a kiss.
Your pond really does acts like a magnet for birds far and wide.The youngsters are cute, but look like they could eat a good meal.Very nice photo selection.
Great series of the beautiful heron!!
Love the scruffy young ones :D)
Hi!!!..Beautiful pictures in this ardeida.. Congrat.. Regards from spain..
Great shots. Always nice to have a family of birds turn up.
What a treat. Lucky girl!
What beautiful photos...impressive looking birds at the Run*A*Round. Did you have tickets made yet??? ;)
Wow! I've not only never seen these before, I've also never even heard of them! Fantastic top rate photos!
Adolescent birds must be somewhat like adolescent kids!
The first picture of the juvenile made him look really scrawny. But he/they became progressively more beautiful in the successive photos. What a neat bird.
Fabulous captures -- (yes, I'm playing catch-up today.)
Young birds always look so gangly!! I'm playing catch-up too! :)
They certainly are skinny things!By the way~ love the new profile pic... is it just me or do you get prettier with each picture? ;)
Goodness look at the long legs on those critters! Skinny aren't they...looks like they could use a few fat frogs or what ever they eat to fatten them up. ;)
Another heron species I'd love to see, but never have! Nice cowlick action! :-) What is that, 3 heron species you've had at the pond?
They are looking quite frail....you need to feed them some Saltines or something to fatten them up ;)
