Snowy Egret hunting for dinner,
plunges his beak,
and pulls out a fish!
Night Herons, White Faced Ibis, Snowy Egrets and Great White Herons, block my path!
424 different bird species have been identified at The Salton Sea, including this handsome Snowy Egret with striped stocking legs.
The placid Black Bellied Plover eats bugs in the sand,
while White Pelicans lumber off as I near.
They soon skid back,
flashing irked looks my way!
Great Blue Herons watch as if saying, “I’m a very big bird, you better be careful, if you come my way!”
Cheers to you from the wintering shorebirds at The Salton Sea~
