Marsh Watching

May 23, 2008

I love this time of year.  The marshes are full of fish and birds catching them.  I sat quietly tonight for about an hour and saw a large variety of birds working the shallow waters.  Here is a small sampling of what was there, Black Skimmers, Snowy Egrets and Black-necked Stilts.  While the skimmers and stilts fished without pause, the egrets were preening, apparently with no more room for minnows in their stomachs.
