The last of my Great Egret captures taken at Blackwater NWR in the past couple months.
It’s amazing how white they remain, even when foraging in the muddy marshes.

Great Egret – snack gone in a gulp!
I’ve been back to the refuge three times in the past three weeks and no longer see any Egrets of any kind. It looks like they’ve officially left for the fall/winter to warmer temperatures in the southern states of the U.S.
