Reddish Egret @ Florida

Another one from the lagoon at the North Beach of Fort Desoto, Florida.

 

The really cool thing about this egret and the mergansers, and well all the birds here was that they were hunting together. I think the mergansers were seeing the fish under the surface and were pushing them around the lagoon. In doing so they were grouping the bait fish, and all the other birds were following the mergansers around. They hunted like this for hours during the few days I was there.
