    Thanks
    but don't think so
    I checked and Little Blues aren't in these parts normally (SoCal/Los Angeles area) and I believe 1st year Juvis are all White.

    First year juvies are all white until they become first srpring juvies and start the transition to their adult colors. Here's a local from a couple years ago.

  5. Nice! Never shot a juvenile before.
     
  6. That is a nice Capture of a Little Blue in Transistion!!!
     
  7. Nice Shot! Kind of reminds me of how Juvenile Bald Eagles look as they are going through the yearly transitions, varying amounts of white/brown/black as they mature.

    My wife wanted to know why I was so excited about seeing this
    birdie, she thought he looked like someone spilled paint all over him.
