Egret in the Tree

 The Egrets have been rare around the pond all winter.. however it's now in the low 80's now.. Even the Bald Cypress Trees are beginning to leaf..

(the tree in front of my apartment is still bare.. others look like this..)

(a confusing word: leaf, since it looks like no leaf I've seen before..

Sparse tree or not this Egret flew in and landed on the tippy top!

It still amazes me that such a large bird can rest on such small branches and they don't even bend!


But he/ she is beautiful!


I am glad they are retuning to the pond.. even though they don't "stay" they did visit each day, so I am assuming it will be the same this year.

They don't look like the leaves in Jersey, that's for sure, but the wildlife you get to see every day is truly spectacular :D

These white birds (egrets, swans etc.) are so beautiful in their paleness. That last pic is particularly beautiful.

kelly : nope never saw leaves like this before lol

Cath:yes I've grown fond of the plain white egret too.. but it astounds me seeing something that big standing on twigs and child could snap and they barely even bend!

That last picture is AMAZING! Though, in truth, they are all wonderful....It is truly miraculous that such a big bird can sit on these little bitty branches that look no more than twigs.
