My bird book indicates that this bird is in the heron family. Did all of you know that?!?! and not tell me!!!!
"Cattle Egret. Great Egret, large all-white heron, often seen feeding in marshes, swamps and seashores." My first sighting was a small pond, along the highway. This one I spotted in Stonington, where a very sweet woman told me it was an Egret. Prior to that, I still believed these were Herons!!!!
They are graceful and slow making these flight shots possible!!!!
When I look at these shots I am super surprised that I took them....and pretty darn proud!!!
