Reddish egrets around Matagorda, Texas
April 10, 2007.
This is a reddish egret. I has a different fishing method than other herons. The reddish egret feeds in shallow estuaries by spreading its wings and spooking fish. Then with those wings spread it chases after schools of fleeing fish. It is a real hoot to watch them in action.
That reddish egret is moving along with flapping wings in search of a fish that wants to flee.
It is hard to catch one with their wings closed but here is a one with wings tucked away but you will note that this bird is on the move.
One last picture of a reddish egret. The colors on this bird are so brilliant when the sun strikes them just right.
