Large Wading Birds

Egrets, White Ibises, juvenile White Ibises, and Herons were all photographed here this last Summer.  I am showing a look-back at pictures of wading birds that I had not posted before.  I hope you enjoy seeing photographs of these jumbo birds as much as I did  seeing them in person.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. I enjoy seeing your pictures of these. We just don’t have them here. We have great blue herons but that’s about it.

    • Hi Montucky, Yes, these are fairly tropical birds. By the way, heard a flock of Sand Hill Cranes fly over the house last night at about 10:00. Also, saw the first Goldfinch here today. So, Winter migrants still arriving. Glad you also have Great Blue Herons on your rivers and streams and lakes. Have a fantastic day!

  2. still jealous on the little blue!

  3. The huge birds are so impressive. White ibis are my favorite!

    • Hi Ginny, The Ibises were chowing down just across the street from my home here. Floridians apparently sometimes do see these large birds on their lawns during late Spring into the early Summer. Quite a sight! Have a tremendously nice evening and a good day tomorrow, too!

  4. Hi LInda, I always love seeing the tropical big birds… The photos are great –but I can imagine how much more exciting it is to see them in person…. Great set!

    • Hi Betsy, Thanks! I enjoy seeing birds of all sizes and kinds. I am excited to see Goldfinches here today for the first time since I have lived here (8 months already). It’s a little cooler here in the low 70’s today. Looking forward to seeing more and different birds soon. Thanks for you great comments. Stay warm and enjoy the deer, birds, and critters of the always beautiful Glade.

  5. You are so lucky to enjoy these waders. I love the Ibis and the Little Blue! Great shots! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  6. Great captures! Love the juvenile ibis with his reflection!
