World Bird Wednesday


What is it about the Great White Egret ... is it the magnificent wing span, the gleaming white feathers?  They always make my heart pound when I see one.  And, I see many, because they are everywhere up here ... but still the thrill:)




I know, I have a thing about preening birds ... but bear with me :)
Okay, I know this is a little off subject ...  When I took this picture I thought it was a loon.  Then I downloaded it and now I am not sure what it is.  Thoughts anyone?
