Not a Kite
« on: June 25, 2020, 03:53:58 pm »

Neil's three fine kite pictures got me to go back into my catalog and look at some of my own bird pictures. Here's one of my favorites. I'm quite sure I posted it on LuLa before, but that was probably eight or nine years ago.

Just an egret, Eric. Snowy is quite a bit smaller.

Ah, for me you should have hung a ruler around his neck.   ;)

Nice shot (but still no ruler.)   ;)

We do get snowies up here, but not the larger egrets.

The larger egret is about twice the size of the snowy. They're both beautiful birds. We have an egret who fishes on the river in the morning, pretty close to the house, but I haven't seen a snowy for several years. One problem is that the neighborhood's getting too crowded. Everybody's bailing out of New York and coming down here to get away from the confiscatory taxation, and it's driving the birds away. I hope they're just going farther south.

Then there's the great blue. According to my catalog I have pictures of 254 great blues. This one's from eleven years ago. It was very early in the morning and I don't think I even saw him until he took off. We still have a few great blues around, but a lot less than we had back then.

I've got about two pictures of Great Blues. One was nesting at a nearby pond for a couple of years several years ago.
