No Honor Among Thieves

No Honor Among Thieves , Egrets

Neither bird cared if the human crew knew they were onboard.  They were pirates. Having to share with another pirate/Egret was the problem.

It was loud, but over quick. The first thief stood his ground, the prize was his.

Smaller Snowy Egrets were near but I guess they were not considered competition.

With the interloper driven away the first thief waited for the crew to share the spoils. Which they always do.

It was a good day to be a pirate.

    Sometimes you have to be a pirate and a strong one!
