Egret, September 12, 2015

Camera Critters, Saturday's Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Saturday's Silhouettes
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, September 1, 2015

This bird flew as soon as I stopped the car beside the road.  This one quick photo was all I could get.   Since the bright sky background caused this to be a silhouette, I am not sure of the feather's true colors. When I first saw it, I thought it was a hawk, but now I don't think so. Anyone have an idea?

Have a great week-end!

  1. Hello Lea, beautiful captures of the Egrets. Maybe your bird in flight is a crow or raven? Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

    1. Thanks, Eileen. I just now looked up the Common Raven, Corvus corax, in my bird book (Audubon Society), and they are described as scavengers, larger than crows, having a larger bill and a wedge-shaped tail. Mississippi is not in their normal range, but I know birds don't follow the lines on a map!
      Have a great week-end!

  5. Wonderful photos of the Great Egret wading and hunting in the swamp. The other bird seems like a crow but it could just be that it is a silhouette, but the feathers are caught so full of motion!

  10. Beautiful...both the egret in the swamps, and the silhouetted bird....which I think as Eileen, a crow? The beak and head shape looks similar to a crow.

    Thanks for stopping by this weekend and linking up at I'd Rather B Birdin'!!!
