Snowy Egret

Solitary Snowy Egret

Snowy Egrets are entertaining to watch as they dart about, working to stir up small fish in the water. This one separated himself from the flock of nearby Roseate Spoonbills and Wood Storks and took a short break. We are used to seeing  Great Egrets waiting this way, but generally the Snowy Egrets don’t have the same perseverance.

A quick turn and a pounce into the water yielded nothing, this time.

    1. Thank you, Tina. Can’t go wrong with an egret! That’s amazing that you are seeing spoonbills around–it certainly does seem to be change as talk with folks who have been here for decades.
