As Soon As They Fluff Up…You Know…
Snowy Egrets spend a large percentage of their time fussing and squabbling with one another. The tip off to the start of an ‘incident’ by an agitated snowy is when it suddenly gets all fluffed up.
So when I saw this one beginning to get his wings and feathers all in an uproar I knew the fight was on. Sure enough, snowball quickly moved in on his friend and quickly chased off the unsuspecting and innocent intruder.
So it goes in snowy egret world, they just can’t help themselves…
Eek! That’s one angry bird. You always know an animal is pissed when hair that doesn’t normally stand up suddenly IS. 😡
That is definitely the case with the snowys, you see that puffed up hair do and it’s fight on! 🙂
West Side Story with a minor twist…Its On.
Oh it’s on! But then ten seconds later, it’s all forgotten about. Until the next time. 😮
Yikes, he’s mad and trying to make a point. Those eyes! And the poor other guy looks so calm and flat!
It’s funny because that’s exactly how it happens. One guy starts the whole mess and the other guy just moves along without getting in a major twist about it. 🙂
Beautiful bird ballet Phil 🙂
They are fun to watch Sophie and often very entertaining. 😎
Fred and ai enjoyed talking to you while you and Fred photographed that fluffy egret.
Hey that’s great! Nice talking to you folks as well and funny we saw the same bird!
Wow! He’s really angry! Wonderful sequence.
They go from zero to one thousand instantly. But then a few seconds later all is calm again, especially if they spot some nice fish.
So beautiful and so naughty!
They are indeed both of those things Maggie!
