“Don’t Even THINK About Landing Here!”
On a recent late evening in the salt marsh it was obvious these two egrets had some sort of issue with each other. When one came in to land the other put up his wings defiantly, and gave a seriously unwelcoming look. The arriving intruder got the message loud and clear as he never did land. In fact, I don’t know how he managed to stay airborne throughout the entire incident which went on for several intense seconds.
