A Great Day for a Great Egret

Image

Following on from the last post, here is the only shot I captured of a Great Egret on our recent trip to South Carolina. Again this was taken around the Shem’s Creek area of Charleston.  Lot’s of bird and dolphin  watching opportunities to take in there.  I guess the differences between the great Egret and the Snowy Egret shown in the previous post are size (Great Egret about 2-1/2 times larger) and feet color.  The Great Egret has black feet and the Snowy has yellow feet.  I also just noticed that this Egret has a tag.  The DNR must be watching this egret’s habits.
