Kevin K. and I went over to Black Point Wildlife Drive last Tuesday. The water levels were low and although we saw quite a few birds, many of them were far from the road and hard to photograph. Here are some images from the trip that I like.
Hunter’s Dance – A Reddish Egret stalks fish in the marsh
These Egrets have a distinctive dance they use to scare up fish. It seems to work for them!
Green Herons use a different technique. This one was wading carefully through the mangrove roots on the side of a canal looking for a snack.
And finally, here’s a photo of a Great Egret taking off from a tree beside the trail.
This one was a little slow – normally birds are gone by the time I get my camera ready!
