Egrets are moving out but there are still occasions where large flocks pass through. This flock numbered over 100 and filled the trees and marsh for a time as they stopped to rest. Half of them were already on their way within a hour.
A lone Great Blue Heron joined the group for a bit.
This female American Black Duck looks a bit bewildered by all the commotion as the marsh filled with Egrets.
Huge flocks of Double-crested Cormorants are migrating as well. They don’t seem to have gotten the precise V formation down very well. Canada Geese could teach them a thing or two!
This Cormorant dropped down to take a break on some pilings at a boat launch.
Birds discovered ailerons, flaps and spoilers long, long before we invented airplanes.
One thought on “Cormorants. And More Egrets.”
Cool shots. You need to share with an aerodynamics class.
