„Reddish Egret Canopy Feeding“

from the gallery of Louise Heusinkveld

Reddish Egret (Egretta rufescens), adult dark morph canopy feeding at South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center, Texas. These birds raise their wings and dance in the water to stir up the fish. The raised wings shade the water and enable the egret to see the fish.
