Reddish Egrets were around, and in some decent numbers. At the best of times we can be happy with just a few. The other day we had at least 6 in one location.
These birds have a small habitat. Storms, drought, and toxic algae along the coast all effect the Reddish more than other birds.
They are the ultimate dancers of the wading birds. This guy was just warming up.
