They Are At It Again
On a recent afternoon in the salt marsh I was not at all surprised to see a pair of snowy egrets engaged in an altercation. As best as I can determine, snowys spend approx. 60% of their lives fussing and squabbling with one another. The remaining 40% will be divided among feeding, mating (I don’t know how they manage to stop fighting long enough to accomplish that), flying around and resting.
But if two snowy egrets find themselves in the same spot at the same time you can usually count on a fully fluffed up incident to occur.
It’s snowys being snowys, that’s what they do!
