Happy Monday everyone!
I am sharing one of my favorite birds seen in Florida. We saw many of the Cattle Egrets at the Circle B Bar Reserve near Lakeland Florida. During the breeding season they have pretty tan or golden feathers on their head, chest and back. They are smaller in size compared to the other Egret species. They are all white with a yellow bill and legs.
BTW, I hope Florida and my friends and family there have all safely survived Hurricane Irma. I also hope all my favorite birding spots, birds and wildlife have survived this storm.
If you click on the photo below you can see some of the Cattle Egret below that have the golden colors on their head.
These two Cattle Egrets were seen in Baltimore County Maryland. So they are found up and down the coast during the summer season.
A few more Cattle Egrets seen at a local Florida preserve. They eat insects on gassy fields.
I hope you enjoyed my Egrets photos and post.
As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.
My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.
