A sign near the Sanibel City Pier.
Wonder if the Osprey is eating one of the Frequently Caught.
Birds were standing around on the beach, waiting for people to catch fish.
Not this bird, though.
In a tree near the pier, a couple of egrets arranged themselves for comparison, Great and Snowy.
In another branch, a juvenile Reddish Egret!
Perched on a railing right next to me, a young Snowy Egret.
Egret and husband on the city pier, yesterday.
Great Egret in a tree.
The Reddish Egret at surf’s edge with a Snowy.
The Snowy on the railing had funny legs, black in front, yellow in back. I guess it is changing from young to adult.
Birds looking for bait.
Snowy Egret is letting me stand next to it.
See what I mean about the legs.
Here’s the Snowy Egret legs I’m used to.
Side by side comparison.
Great Egret still in the tree, looking sort of slinky yet majestic.
Osprey still working on that fish.
Love this shot, and that sea eagle’s eye!
