This series was shot out in the Bear Island wildlife area of the ACE Basin. A cloudy early morning three weeks ago where the various flocks were busy.
Below if viewed large you will find multiple species working the dike side and trunk.
In this group there are;
- Snowy Egret
- Great Egret
- Tricolored Heron
- American Avocet
- White Ibis
- Glossy Ibis
- Yellow Legs
When we first arrive they were much further down the marsh however they were steadily marching right to our corner. Rather than walk the dike and risk scaring them we both found spots with an open view and waited.
Of course they came closer, we did these shots, and as expected flew back to where they started. We didn’t follow. The dike grass is too tall to see anything. Besides they would know we were there and fly off.
Bear Island, South Carolina.

Nice! I do miss these sights in the Everglades….
This is one of the reasons I moved to Charleston. Of course no snow played a part too 😂
Very nice, I’ve save 3 Photos. Thanks, Ted.🌹🌹🌹❤
Need to get me one of those Glossies – seen plenty of possible ones in Texas, but they ended up all having the red eye of the White-Faced.
We never get the White-faced here, but I did just get some pretty good Glossy shots. Haven’t loaded them yet.
