I finally got around to finding the pictures of the immature little blue heron where he is changing from the white immature plumage to the gray plumage we know them by.

Never ever saw a duo colored heron.
Did he eventually loose all his white or remain partially albino?

He will lose all of the white and will look like every other gray little blue heron that you see. Both the white and the speckling are normal variations as they progress towards adulthood.

I thought I was taking a picture of a young red-bellied woodpecker but realized once I got on the computer that I had caught a Northern Flicker.

Here are a couple of shots I got of an immature tri-colored heron.

Not long ago a couple of pairs of Wood Ducks came by.

Wood ducks are beauties aren't they. We had wood duck nest boxes for a while until we had to remove them. The females were laying eggs in each other's boxes. They ended up raising each other's offspring. They must get confused. Beautiful photos MaggyNoLia.

Thank you Equilibrium. We've been enjoying the duck box that is across from us. Our HOA installed 13 boxes around our island last October. Sadly one of the two gentleman that helped install the boxes passed away just last week due to a hunting accident. I always think of this neighbor when I see these ducks because if it wasn't for him, they wouldn't be so near.
