Great Egrets have been known to have disagreements with one another, especially around fishing areas. Sometimes a large group of them can all get along just fine. Other times there could be only two, and one will feel compelled to pick a fight with the other.
On this occasion, one egret was mostly minding it’s own business, trying it’s luck fishing in the marsh pond. Suddenly another came swooping in to immediately start a territorial dispute. They briefly battled and argued until one flew off to the pond’s edge hopefully putting an end to the matter.
But it was not to be as the aggressor continued with it’s attack almost spilling out of the pond and into the marsh weeds. Eventually the two separated and each went back to continue peacefully fishing…for now!
