Spotted this Great Egret on the edge of a dike, actually almost on top of an old wooden trunk.
Directly below the bird is the edge of a salt marsh. It’s tidal so at low tide all types of edible critters are in the mud. The dike is a perfect place to look around below.
The Ocean is probably 15+ miles away but the tide still works this far inland.
That’s why this is called the Lowcountry, we are low…like sea level low.
