Today I am super excited in joining Stewart (Paying Ready Attention) for WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY.
Last Wednesday after Coleen got out of school we went up to Rooks Park and I walked up to Mill Creek to take some pictures. As I was walking towards the creek I spotted something white flying in the air but I couldn't see what it was nor where it went. I happened to spot a guy with a camera looking towards where I was but still could see what he was looking at. He was on the other side of the bank and I watched him and his dog walk on up the trail. Then I turned and headed in his direction and it was then I spotted this:
As I got closer and closer I begin to take more & more pictures.
Neat to get the geese, some ducks and the Egret in the same shot.
I could have watched this bird all day. At first I thought it was a (Snowy Egret) but upon looking it up I discovered this is referred to as a Great Egret or a Common Egret. To me there was nothing "common" about it and I was thrilled beyond belief to actually see it and photograph it.
I hope you've enjoyed my photos of this 1st for me.
