I've yet to see a Little Blue heron-unless I overlooked one.
They can be tricky, but you probably haven't overlooked one unless you are in an area with lots of other small white egrets. Things to look for on an immature is the pale bill and blueish-green leg color. Here in Ohio, the other commonly seen white egrets/herons are Great Egret, which stands out from its size and big yellow bill, and Snowy Egret, which is similar in size to Little Blue Heron but has a black bill and legs (with yellow feet).
