"Reddish" ?


I reduced the size of this photo for memory space issues with Blogger, but I think you can still see how interesting and different this bird is. This is first reddish egret I have ever seen and photographed.  I thought at first that is was a heron because it was so large...but the stabbing bill is supposed to be the give-away if my research understanding is correct.

This was taken in Florida a year or so ago. I am having company so I am posting this just to keep this blog up-to-date.
