Funny Landing But Impressive Bird

Great Egret

 

 

These egrets were headed for extinction, at one point in history.

That's because, people liked their bright, white feathers.

There are way, too many, images of egrets in my flies already.

But, I just had to save this bird's goofy-looking descent.

Once it got settled, my feathered friend, did a bit more regal posing for me.





All About Birds

 

 

There are so many types of herons and egrets, identification can get confusing.

On an occasion or two, I have misidentified a bird and, posted it here.

Something like that can be a disastrous experience.

Bird watching experts and scientists, will jump down your throat !

So, what I do now, is go to The Cornell Lab of Ornithology for identification.

If this egret isn't an Ardea alba, they can try and jump down some other guy's throat.
