It feels a bit odd to be here once again, my time is consumed with way too many things and unfortunately birding is not one of them and I miss it on so many different levels - though I am here now and I am sharing this little beauty - I took an early morning and raced a few miles away before getting ready for work - I got there just as the sun was getting ready to rise and searched for this bird that had been reported....take a look.....
|here we have a Reddish Egret chick sitting in the nest, waking up ever so slowly....|
|its eyes and feathers are totally priceless.|
|Not too far away its parent could be seen hunting for food.|
|The chick seems to be restless as it moved around and stretched its wings and even stepping|
|off the nest and unto the branches. The word out there is that this is the first Reddish Egret nest on Sanibel that we know of, I hope it fledges safely....anyday now.|
Good luck little one, we wish you a long and healthy life.
