Oooh, That Tickles

These two great egrets were captured in action at Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia. Great shot from the US Fish and Wildlife Service.

Harris Neck’s 2,762 acres consists of saltwater marsh, grassland, mixed deciduous woods, and cropland, according to the refuge webpage. “Because of this great variety in habitat, many different species of birds are attracted to the refuge throughout the year. In the summer, thousands of egrets and herons nest in the swamps, while in the winter, large concentrations of ducks (especially mallards, gadwall and teal) gather in the marshland and freshwater pools.”

Sounds like a place I would like to go.
