Bird Week VI The Desert / by Dave Hileman

I really like this image it reminds me of a Japanese print. (Example) This Snowy Egret is a bird I have seen and largely ignored many times but at the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge 90 miles north of Las Vegas I was surprised to see one. And that it was hanging out in a Cottonwood tree on the edge of Upper Lake was a treat. There are birds in the desert but when you find some water the birds multiply by a significant factor. This area just teemed with birds of all sorts.
