Well the local birds clearly decided that is was bath day in the salt marsh this afternoon.
I saw an egret, several wood storks, and a couple of white ibis all taking advantage of the beautiful day to bathe and then use the warm sun to dry off.
These are also birds I rarely see bathe and splash around in the water so it was an interesting and exciting treat. I suppose it’s possible that much of the wildlife is finally breathing a sigh of relief that the severe rain and wind is now behind us, and they can afford the luxury of sprucing themselves up a bit. 🙂
Great shots, Phil. I’m
Wondering if the recent flooding, increased polution and insects are driving the birds
Stunning bathing beauties, Phil. 🙂
Great to see the birds being able to act naturally again! Is the water going down yet?
It looks like it would be a real job to get the feathers back in place in the first picture. Enjoyed!
It is so wonderful to see anyone, or anything, take that much joy in the world where they live.
