Saw this cutie at Black Beach. These egrets are so cute.
Wish they were a little closer at Clark Pond but to see them is wonderful.
Egrets are back
A beautiful egret hanging out in the marsh.
The egrets this year as always are so beautiful and graceful.
When seeing these beautiful birds they make me smile.
On Wednesday afternoon there were two beautiful swans and 3 egrets enjoying a spring day.
On Friday the Snowy Egret and Glossy Ibis were hanging out at Clark Pond. The Glossy Ibis were hiding in the marsh.
The Egrets have come back to Clark Pond. I love these beautiful birds.
Last week we posted a photo of a group of Great Blue Herons, Cormorants, Snowy Egrets, Little Blue Herons, and Great Egrets all foraging together on a rainy morning. The Great Blue Herons are so perfectly camouflaged when perched on the rocky shoreline and we asked how many GBH folks could see. Reader Julie W. saw the most and she even sent the photo back with the Great Blues circled. Thank you Julie for taking the time to do that!!
Love seeing the Egrets over at Clark Pond. There must have been great eats at Clark Pond on Tuesday.
Great Egret Flying Over Perched Osprey
There is much to chortle about in this latest Cape Ann Winged Creature Update. Early April marked the arrival of both Snowy and Great Egrets, Black-crowned Night Herons and Great Blue Herons. Osprey pairs and evidence of Osprey nest building can be seen wherever Essex Greenbelt platforms have been installed. Northern Pintail and American Wigeon Ducks are stopping over at our local ponds on their northward migrations while scrub and shrub are alive with the vibrant song of love birds singing their mating calls. Oh Happy Spring!
Ospreys Nest Building
Northern Mockingbirds Singing
On Monday afternoon behind Lobsta Land spotted these beautiful Egrets. Due to high tide and the trees the photo do not do these birds justice. Another sign of spring.
