An Egret Came A-Calling

from Chris

We get a lot of great blue herons that visit Stevenson Ridge’s ponds, but recently, we had a visit from a bird we’ve not seen nearly so often: a great egret.

Egrets are actually pretty common, but in all honesty, none of us could remember the last time we’d seen one at the Ridge.

Egrets are closely related to herons and have the same tall, thin build. They prowl the shallows in search of small fish—although in this instance, this egret took to the lawn to walk away from our nosey interruption of its dinner!
