    The White Herons
Written by: Billy Litmer

During one of our Kayak Eco Tours it is possible you could see six species of white herons, including the Great White Heron. You could also see the Wurdemann’s Heron, which is believed to be the product of breeding between Great White Herons and Great Blue Herons and is unique to the Florida Keys.

The Herons are long legged birds that live in fresh water and coastal regions. They family includes egrets and bitterns, as suggested by the photo above, differentiating the species can be quite the challenge!
