Reddish Egret

This morning we were watching a juvenile reddish egret fishing in the marsh pond.

The reddish have a very interesting and often entertaining method of feeding.

They race around chasing after fish with their wings up, turning and changing direction frequently.

It resembles some sort of frenetic dance routine and can be quite comical to observe.

  1. So beautiful Phil. Love the whole series. I’ve yet to get a shot of a reddish egret. I’ve never even seen one. What a wonderful hunting display it puts on. Super shots. 🙂
