I like the colors and composition. LOVE the green. plus it's very friendly and egalitarian-like unless this was the moment before the egret on the top started up some shit. I can see attitude brewing but I'm a born new yorker and always a little paranoid.
i didn't see any fighting there, though you could tell the egrets didn't trust the grackles, but then, who does? This was at the entrance to the T&T national zoo, which I found as interesting for what was running around outside the cages as for what was inside 'em.
Who was it that said, "The only people who fear death are those with egrets."???
How can you tell egrets from herons from cranes?
Egrets are herons; cranes are in a different if similar-looking family of birds none of which occur in South America. Saw lots of herons and egrets though, saw more impressive birds in fact during that two months than I'd seen in the previous ten or twenty years. From the bald eagles we sighted immediately after leaving the marina in Savannah to the frigate birds gliding overhead the day I flew back to KC, if it was daytime there were birds somewhere in my field of vision pretty much all the time.
Amy, I think that was Cyrus the Great. Whether that means Miley or Billy Ray is in the eye of the beholder...
Grackles are aggressive and carnivorous birds, known to raid nests of other birds and chow down on fresh chick. Not surprising the egrets look a little nervous here. They are completely out-numbered.
When I take the train into town, it passes through some gorgeous wetlands, always full of egrets, herons too. I've never seen a crane, would love to though.
