And we've got more birds...

I found a really great little park. It's right by a highway, but it still feels secluded and it's got lots of cool birds. In the short time I was there I saw a Green Heron, a Great Egret, a couple hawks (that I couldn't identify), a pair of Woodducks, and some Mallards.

I'd never seen one of these before... It's a Green Heron Butorides virescens




And egrets are always cool,
Great Egret, Ardea alba

Thanks! I'll definitely be going back to that little hidden gem of an area, but bring my tripod! The egret pics weren't real sharp because I was handholding my long lens...

very cool! In my 28 years in Minnesota I never managed to spot a green heron. I'm jealous :)

I was just glad I spotted him before I walked up and spooked him! I was acutally heading toward the pond to shoot the egret!
When I was telling Rick about him before I had the pics transferred to the computer and got him identified my description was that he was like a Great Blue Heron, only not tall. So when I found out that he IS a heron I was very happy with myself!

The egret looks like a bird that we have living near us.
