A Peaceful Day In The Marsh? No…Of Course Not!
Yesterday we were watching a small group of snowy egrets and white ibis picking around in the salt marsh among the oyster beds at low tide. Everything started out quietly enough, but whenever snowys are involved we all know that the peace can’t last for long. Sure enough, once a snowy decided that an ibis was getting too close to his “area”, the inevitable squabble broke out! After the usual amount of squawking, bill banging and required display of wings, they went right back to the all important task at hand which was feeding…of course in this crowd the peace only lasts until the next disagreement breaks out!
