Bird Weekly Challenge – Birds that begin with the Letter E

I can think of many birds that begin with the letter E but for this challenge I will feature two kinds of Egrets – Great Egrets and Snowy Egrets.

We visited St. Augustine Alligator Farm in February one year in hopes of seeing the Great Egrets in their beautiful breeding plumage. They put on quite a show.

Snowy Egrets are smaller than the Great Egrets and have yellow feet.

Thank you Lisa for this week’s Bird Weekly Challenge Birds that begin with the Letter E

Bird Weekly Challenge #35: Birds I love

I’m not a birder and don’t have a life list but I love all birds and I love to watch them doing what birds do. It’s always interesting to see a bird or a pair of birds on their nest or building their nest. It’s even more fun if there are chicks!

Bird Weekly Challenge #33: Birds on a wire or fence

This challenge reminded me of a Great Egret we saw perched on the end of a dock at an RV Park in Cedar Key, Florida more than a few years ago. It ignored me as it kept on preening and I kept snapping away.

After browsing through my archives I came up with few more birds that meet the challenge.

Great Blue Heron, Ft. Pickens National Seashore, Florida
Hawk on Fence in Coastal Georgia
Lark Sparrow – Montana
American White Pelicans and Cormorants – Texas Gulf Coast
