I pass by a pond every time I go in to town by way of the back roads. I was happy to see this Great Egret perched on a dead tree, so stopped and took several pictures.
On the way back, the Egret was still there, so took a few more pics. I didn't see the Blue Heron until I uploaded the pics to my computer. He was camouflaged beside the dead tree limbs.
It was also a Bobwhite Quail kind of day. I have only seen them on the ground, so was happy to see this one perched on a fence post.
A little farther down the road, I saw this guy.
These Black Vultures look like they belong in this dead tree.
