February 7th, 2014 – Avian Friday: Snowy Egret

Wow, what a week it’s been in Seattle! Between the Seahawks dominating performance in the Super Bowl win and the following victory parade, it’s been crazy in our little corner of the country. I probably should have posted some type of hawk or raptor this week to commemorate the events. Here is another view of a Snowy Egret that I took while visiting Southern California a few seasons back. Not a bird we are used to seeing up here in the Pacific Northwest.
