Snowys Being Snowys

Yesterday afternoon a couple of snowy egrets were among the crowd over in the salt marsh during low tide. But of course, as is typical of snowys, they are rarely capable of getting along with one another.

When this one aggressive snowy arrived he proceeded to run off his friend that was quietly feeding and minding his own business. Naturally that was not enough, he couldn’t just run off the other snowy, he had to turn it into and full out airborne chase across the marsh.

Once he was satisfied that he successfully managed to claim sole ownership of the fishing spot, it was time for a well deserved fluff up to congratulate himself on a job well done!

  1. Detail of the fluff up is gorgeous. I had to laugh at the first two photos, only to laugh again at the third. Still kind of tufted up there a bit. Then, of course, there’s that self-congratulatory full body fluff in the last photograph (the fine feathers show so well against the background)!

  2. In the fourth photo, the snowy has such an intense expression in its eyes! A terrific sequence of great shots, and a matching story. Thanks!
