caught this handsome heron flying into an island rookery to join its mate.
how little, how fragile, how vulnerable... just back from Florida and visiting some of my old time favorite places with old and new friends. What joy to be in the presence of birds and to watch for hours and hours their behaviors, I am blessed!
snowy egret in full breeding plumage this last week displaying beautifully. No yellow feet or lores, they have transitioned to a pinkish rouge.
thats some serious sand drilling! i like the "sand-cone" they both have on their bills!
