Roosting Egrets

September 13, 2008

A friend told me about a place where Great Egrets are now roosting for the night in a large flock.  Although the light was a little flat tonight I photographed the birds as they settled into bed.  There was quite a bit of muscling for the best branch as demonstrated by these two.
