Snowy Egrets & The Little Blue Heron

DSC_5968

Two Snowy Egrets joined the Little Blue Heron at the golf course pond here last evening at twilight.  It seemed like the big wading birds were out fishing for dinner.  The Snowy Egrets are medium-sized wading birds with bright yellow feet, lighter yellow legs, and a touch of yellow above their bill.  They are a bright white in color. The Little Blue Heron is probably the same one that I photographed a few days ago in that same pond.

One side of this pond is along the golf course fairway, and the other side is just off a street here.  This pond usually stays full of water all year around unlike the rainfall retention ponds elsewhere in this development.  I took these pictures last evening at about 6:00PM.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
