Cattle Egrets Today

This morning I went out to check on the egrets northeast & northwest of Estevan.  The nights are quite cold now, the days getting shorter, and I am really curious to know about when all these Cattle Egrets will suddenly decide it is time to move on.

Not yet...

There are approx. 150 birds in this group - a few stragglers on either side, plus 8 across the road. 

Oh, and THIS is also going on across the road.

It's the Bakken Field - there are no quiet, secluded places around here anymore.

  1. I love the quiet secluded places. And you comment tugs the heart. As I'm worried about our State opening up the Arrowhead country of northeaster Mn. to the sulfide contanmination that will come with copper/nickle mining...:(
