“This Is MY Spot!”

Yesterday afternoon there were a few egrets out fishing in the salt marsh among the oyster beds.

Suddenly one came swooping in and rudely chased off his friend. It’s not like there is only a tiny area to fish in, there is plenty of room for everybody. But not to these guys who take it personally when another bird invades ‘their’ spot!

    • We still have egrets coming out of our ears here and will soon begin the countdown for spoonbill arrival. Hopefully some spoonies show up last week in June so we have a month to go yet.

    • What’s amazing is that one will fly a considerable distance, against a strong wind, just to chase off another one.
      Other times 4 or 5 of them can all fish in the same spot and get along fine. Goofy birds. o_O
