Egrets can be funny. Sometimes several can get along just fine in a group, other times one will fly clear across the marsh just to chase off another. In this case we have a pair that started out being friendly enough, but that good will was not to last. One decided the other had to go, and go immediately.
But it was the way the chase and the retreat turned out that intrigued me. It seems they were both determined to look good during the altercation, as if it was a routine that had been planned in advance and fully choreographed.
Like I said…funny birds.
