Cattle Egret


When photographing the Cattle Egrets I felt it proper to include to cow.

I spotted many of these stocky little herons feeding around the cattle pasturing in the vast fields of the Florida prairie region. At one point I noticed an Egret hitching a ride on a cow’s back but before I could bring the camera into play it decided to hop down. Another missed opportunity!

Cattle Egret with cattle. How cool! Saw my first Cattle Egret's last spring at St Augustine. They are very pretty during breeding season.

Salty: That certainly helps with the ID when you include the cow. That is a big cow and makes the birds look small.

Salty, I have been following along with your Florida photographs and enjoying them very much. I am glad you had the chance to capture some eagles while away.

That's a great shot even without the egret hitching a ride...
