Yes, Great Egrets Are Showing Off

It’s early on yet. But I have seen a few of the Great Egrets with the ‘bridal feathers’. Some even dancing for a mate.

When they dance photographs are all about getting the right angle, and this is not it. Still I was happy to see the season starting to show life.

  1. Wow. I never fail to be impressed by displays of feathers like these. Breeding season brings out such spectacular colors and displays in so many bird species.

    1. Ellen and I are lucky to live down the road from large rookeries. Yes, this time of year is filled with beauty. Yesterday morning I stood on a trail and watched several Great Blues finishing nests, one feeding tiny young. It was amazing to see the Herons bring sticks to nest, but first fly in tight circles just happy to be in the air. (Happily unaware of the chaos in the world).
