I have so many bird images from my visit to the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge I could keep showing them for months! I really want to move on the Everglades but before I do I want to have at least one post for of each of the bird species I photographed.
This was the first time I saw a Reddish Egret. They are very unique with the colours of their feathers. When I first got there it was one of the first birds I saw and he was standing in the water all stoic and regal.
That was until he decided to go fishing and then he turned into a crazed goofy bird running along the top of the water! It was just like that episode of “Friends” where Phoebe goes jogging and she runs like a total moron, remember that? The Reddish Egret is just like that, it was hysterical.
