Lava or Galapagos Heron

Butorides sundevalli

Description:

Pale blue smallish heron in the rocks on the Galapagos Islands

Habitat:

I think of the Island as rather a bleak place to live, but he probably finds plenty of fish.

Notes:

This was taken by my Grandson, Caleb Leininger when he recently visited the Galapagos Islands while he is in school in Ecuador. I have his permission to use his pictures on Noah
