Jordan Lake. Two uncommon species appeared this weekend at Jordan Lake. Photos 1 & 2 are juvenile White Ibis. Photos 3 & 4 are juvenile Little Blue Herons. These two species are usually seen only in the coastal areas of North Carolina.
This morning at the Jordan Lake dam was a rarity.
I often see several species…but today was extremely varied:
I saw a bald eagle fledgling, the largest bird at the lake.
A ruby-throated hummingbird stopped by; the smallest bird at the lake.
The youngsters are not blue at all,
but are white with black tipped wings, yellowish legs and dusky bills.
At first glance they look like great egrets!
