Friday Afternoon

It was a mostly quiet afternoon yesterday over at the marsh.

A great blue heron as usual had to announce his comings and goings. A mixed group of male and female hooded mergansers floated along on their standard patrol.

A young white ibis picked along in the shallow water at the edge of the marsh searching for a tasty treat. And an egret still hard at work fishing, is silhouetted by warm setting sunlight to wind down the day.

  1. That big heron has a huge yap! He must have squawked a good one. These are lovely photos, and such a nice sampling of marsh birds. Love the tufts on the mergansers, the young ibis, and that beautiful silhouette and reflection in the last shot.
