Texas shore birds
April 10, 2007.
Little Blue Heron
We stopped and watched this little blue heron stalk small fish in a shallow estuary.
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.
One last picture of that reddish egret. The colors on this bird are so brilliant when the sun strikes them just right.
Black neck stilts
These are black neck stilts. The coloring is so vivid that they look like expensive toys.
This is a yellow legs although I am not sure if it is a greater or lesser yellow legs.
