Quick Skirmish In The Salt Marsh

Earlier this week there were a couple of egrets fishing in the salt marsh during low tide. The egrets don’t seem to be in particularly social moods lately, and when I saw this one jump off, I wasn’t surprised to see him go after the other egret.

He bit the offending bird in the rump and then tried to bite it’s foot but missed as the lucky egret skipped away to safety just in time.

    • It’s ofren hysterical to see one go out of it’s way to fly across the marsh just to chase off another egret that was minding it’s own business. Guess it’s the principal of the thing. 🙂
