Abstract: ABSTRACT. We document the expansion of the breeding distribution of the Little Blue Heron Egretta caerulea (Linnaeus, 1758) to 850 km beyond its previous southern limit in South America. In addition we present data on abundance, breeding biology and food of the species in the Patos Lagoon estuary, the area which the species recently colonized. The maximum abundance recorded in the breeding colony and in a nocturnal roosting site was 53 and 49 individuals respectively. Nesting occurred from September to March.… Show more

“…Estudos no Brasil mostram que esta agregação pode concentrar de poucos pares (MATOS, 1996;RECHETELO, 2009;GIANUCA, et al, 2011) (GIANUCA, 2010).
