|I think this is the first egret I've seen in our neighborhood.|
We live next to a lake so we get to see water-loving birds. The most common are geese and ducks of various varieties, and sometimes a heron appears briefly. I was delighted to see the egret! I've seen plenty of them on Assateague Island but not here in the Shenandoah Valley. Such graceful birds!
