Breeding attempts by juvenile Great Blue Herons. Although most North American herons probably do not attempt to breed for the first time until the breeding season of their second year, records of breeding by Black-crowned Night Herons (Nycticorax nycticorax) (Gross 1923), Green Herons (Butorides virescens) (Meyerriecks, in Palmer 1962), and Little Blue Herons (Florida caerulea)( Palmer 1962) in juvenile plumage indicate that in these species a few individuals attempt breeding at about 1 year of age.
