I find lots of surprises on my daily walk through the Troy Trails. I had to hurry home; grab my camera, my longest lens, then hop on my bike to photograph this cool bird.


The Google machine helped me narrow this bird down to a few different species:

  • Blue Egret?

  • 
Great Egret?

  • Great White Heron?

  • White Phase Great Blue Heron?

Social media told me it was likely a Great Egret, though there’s a possibly it’s a White Phase Great Blue Heron.

I rEGRET not asking its name when I took the picture.
