Breakfast To Go

A great egret flies across the marsh pond during the early morning hours with a fresh caught fish. Normally birds like egrets will gulp down a fish right at the spot where they caught it, but sometimes, when so many are after the same thing, it’s wiser to go with take away!

  1. Smart move! I see his feet are not yet streamlined — this must have been a bit after he took off. Bet he can’t wait to get that fresh treat down!

    • He did just take off and in a hurry too! There were several other egrets and some great blue herons in the area all of which would be happy to take away the fish.

    • I’m happy you liked this egret shot Maggie! Oh he ended up eating the fish himself, he just wanted to move to a more quiet and secure location without the vultures (other egrets and herons) staring at him. 🙂
