Bird Week V: Rocket Birds 7 (two photos) / by Dave Hileman

We end Bird Week with my favorite of the Canaveral National Seashore, a Reddish Egret. I have not seen this bird too often and it is a striking color especially the bill and the neck colors in a breeding bird such as this one. They often will spread their wings like a canopy to create shade that attracts prey.
