Reddish Egrets From J.N. Ding Darling NWR

A series of Reddish Egret Images from a previous trip to the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge in Sanibel Florida. All images were taken with a Canon 1D mkIV with a Canon 400mm DO lens with a 1.4X Teleconverter. The Featured image is 2 Reddish Egrets Foraging for a meal by one of the viewing areas close to the Wildlife Drive. Here there is a sand dune out in the water fairly close to the Wildlife Drive so it is a good spot to photograph the action of the birds interacting with each other.

    • Thanks! It is fun to watch them interacting around each other. They seemed to stay together as a couple foraging for a meal.

    • Thanks Donna! They also had radio tracking devices on their backs, but you really do not see them in the photos because I retouched out the antennas!

    • Thanks Steve! Yes, their bills do look sharp! They are fun to watch interacting with each other! I usually do not see many Reddish Egrets to photograph!
