One of my personal favorite herons, the Little Blue has a subdued character when searching for prey, focused, and determined. Native Americans relate to blue herons symbolically as self-reliance and self-determination, the ability to evolve and progress. During the first year of their life cycle, their feathers are all white which has a practical function of improving their survival rate. Because they are white, more white herons and egrets accept them (Snowy Egrets and Great Egrets) in their foraging groups which give them easier access to prey.
