Trust everyone had a special Christmas. The featured species for today's post is the Reddish Egret. These birds are great fun to watch. They are a challenge to photograph because they are continually running around actively feeding by either flapping wings or using the shadow of its wings above the shallow water to drive prey forward for capture. Reddish Egrets are larger than the herons posted on the 22nd, about 22" long, with a 46" wingspan. The 2nd to the last image shows a typical feeding method. If you enlarge the bottom image, you can see that bird has a freshly caught fish in his bill.
