April 12th, 2013 – Avian Friday: White Ninja
During a past visit to Bolsa Chica Wetlands I spent a little time observing this little Snowy Egret. I assumed he was a youngster because he wasn’t having much success hunting for baitfish at the tide gate to the reserve. I had posted another shot from this sequence previously, but I think the processing on this one is an improvement.
