After watching a Great Blue Heron Hunting in a stream I got a further surprise when I spotted a Great Egret working the same area.
This was in February and in addition to it being a dull day it was rather dark under the tree canopy and still pretty brown.
A bit of green reflection in the water gives a hint that winter was waning.
The Egret was successful finding a few small snacks.
He was encouraged by his success and continued along the bank.
