Pic of the Day

Snowy Egret, Egretta thula; Fort Myers Beach, Florida
     This Snowy Egret with its spread wings was captured landing in a tide pool during an early morning feeding frenzy at the Fort Myers Beach sandbar.  Other birds feeding were Roseate Spoonbills, Brown Pelican, Willets, American Egrets, and Tri-colored, Little Blue and Great Blue Herons.  The feeding frenzy occurred for three mornings in a row.  I guess it took that long to deplete the fish trapped in the tide pool.
