This is a Great Egret we affectionately refer to as “Radar”. Radar has a transmitter pack with two antennas attached to his back which was put there as part of a study on the migratory habits of wading birds.

Radar is undaunted by his electronics. In fact, he acts like head egret of the marsh, constantly chasing and challenging other birds over fishing territory.

Here, Radar comes up with a freshly caught shrimp for dinner while patrolling the marsh pond.
