Great Egrets Roosting In Trees

Along the Wildlife Drive in the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, there is a group of trees at one of the bends in the drive that seems to attract a variety of Herons along with Egrets. You can usually see Black-Crowned Night-Herons, Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, and occasionally Yellow-crowned Night-Herons & Cattle Egrets. This series are with the Great Egrets.

    • Thanks Belinda! It is amazing what I have seen and photographed in this group of trees over the years! On this day the Black-crowned Night-Herons were on the back side of the trees and only saw little glimpses of them.

  1. Somehow it’s surprising to see those large birds roosting in trees while thinking it quite normal for turkeys to do the same.
