Big Birds



I am always so thrilled when I can witness these awesome birds. They like to hang out in a canal or as the locals call it..a lagoon, on the way out of our complex. These photos were taken through my car window two days ago.

We have a few Great Grays to stay here all year long. The egrets return in spring. Nice snapshots.

They have a graceful way about them. Nice photos.

I love them! So pretty and lean and long. Just like I wish I was!

Did they find anything yummy to eat? They seem tame because you are able to get close to them.

I'm always watching for the great blue herons and the giant egrets -- except that darn blue heron has been most nasty about our fish pond.

We just keep a net on it. I've never seen the egret in our back yard.

That second photo....we've got one of them nesting near the local Logan's restaurant. Gorgeous bird. I've got a shot of it somewhere around here...
