Reddish Egret

Now the winner of the Favorite Heron/Egret Poll - the Reddish Egret. Most of the Herons and Egrets hunt by stealth, moving very slowly or not at all. Not the Reddish: it runs, prances and dances, running with wings spread, then often freezes with spread wings and spears frightened fish seeking shelter. It can be a hellofa show.

GET READY.





GET SET.

GO!!!







(7% of Reddish Egrets are the White Morph)

We may be out there some too, but it is hard to pull away from 1410 Oakwood. http://oakwoodlife.blogspot.com/2014/05/wood-warblers.html

I might want to try Hvoslef too.
