Very interesting. I've never had the opportunity to see a cattle egret before. They're a sharp-looking bird with the reddish plumes on the head.
Thanks, Scott. We usually don't have more than a few Cattle Egrets here, usually seen during the Spring migration. However, this year - unbelievable numbers, all thanks to the flooding in Spring of 2011. I'm composing an info post about Cattle Egrets; hopefully have that up in a day or two.
love the red headed egrets ! instantly wanted to call one of them Ron Weasly LOL really great shots
Thanks, Luna. Ron Weasly, indeed It was, in fact, rather magical finding all these Cattle Egrets around this year - not usual in my (dry prairie) part of the country.
