Sibly's Guide to Bird Life and Behavior describes it as "the most active foraging technique of any ardeid, literally chasing small fish through shallow water." It is a hoot to watch!
How did you like that? Wanna see some more?
The photos are mine, and in no way compare to the quality of those taken by my good friends who are serious bird photographers! I am just not "camera-ed up " for those type of shots. I do your basic botany shots, and just can't resist the urge to document something exciting if it is in close range.
If you would like to see a video of another Reddish Egret in action, just follow this link to you-tube and enjoy.
