Entertained by Some Redheaded Cattle Egrets
Unlike many egrets and herons they don't spend much time feeding around streams or shores.
Today, they were spotted following a farmer's tractor as the ground was being tilled.
They like to eat bugs, frogs and, any other small animal they can catch.
These birds originated in Africa but, now may be found around the globe.
The Latin name for these redheads is Bubulcus ibis.
The first photo shows a bird looking for something flying around, to eat.
The second photo, I'm guessing is a male bird, trying to attract a mate.
Remember the silly stuff, you had to do on the dance floor when you were younger ?
