The Hungry Egret
During our wonderful visit to Sawgrass Recreation Park in December 2010, one of my favorite memories is of a beautiful Great Egret who was apparently quite hungry.
After our amazing air boat ride through the marsh, hubby, son and I walked over to their animal park to view the reptiles. On our way, however, we were treated to a little show by this elegant Great Egret. It was quite tame, and I assume it was a regular resident of the park. Apparently, the egret thought it was time for a snack, so it walked ever so slowly and gently to the door of the bait house, then peered inside.
We quickly knew that this egret was familiar with this routine, so we watched for a bit to see what would happen. Sure enough, a tasty fish snack soon came its way.
This Great Egret was a large, beautiful bird, and we were thoroughly entertained just watching it here for a few minutes.
