Observation details

Juvenile lacks shaggy head plumes, but prances like an adult. Pale cinnamon head and neck coloring bleeds into pale blue body (see photo). In some light the bird actually looks grayish overall. Bill solid black and legs dark. Smaller than nearby GBHE, but would be larger than LBHE if present..
