Little blue herons (egretta caerulea) are birds of quiet waters from estuaries, marshes, and tidal flats, to streams, swamps and flooded fields of the southeastern United States, coastal Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and northern South America into interior Brazil. Most birds are resident.
They usually forage in water 2" to 6" deep feeding on small fish, amphibians, crustaceans and insects. They only wade up to belly deep in the water. They typically stand and wait for prey or creep along slowly.
