Bird Photography Weekly-Snowy Egret

Snowy Egret

Holy Crap!  This water is COLD!

This picture always cracks me up.  I spied this Snowy Egret on the Texas coast in May so the water was not terribly cold, but by the look on its face, it seems to be thinking it.  Actually it was really windy and the surf was pretty rough that day.  You can see the foam and the force of the water as it surges around the bird’s legs.

Bird Photography Weekly

black-necked stilt

This picture is a few years old and was taken at a sewage treatment plant–one of my favorite places to bird.  It’s true.  Have you tried it?

I have 2 favorite ones.  The first time I was ever at a sewage treatment facility it was at the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve in Nevada, outside of Las Vegas.  It was amazing.  If you are ever near Vegas, you gotta go there!  The second time was at the Port Aransas Birding Center in Port Aransas, Texas.  This picture was taken there.

I almost always find something interesting at a sewage treatment plant.  Um, other than what you would expect.  To see other interesting birds check out what is going on at BirdFreak this week.
