The Bird D'pot

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.

    I love seeing your quail. I too only see them on the ground.

  7. Hi Betty. I do like that BobWhite Quail. It's a handsome creature. And you're right, the vultures look as if they belong in a Western adventure movie just waiting for the `dead bodies after a shoot out.

  8. I love the egret in profile on the branch. I don't know if I've noticed a quail before. Those vultures are up to no good.

  9. Betty - terrific pictures - I especially like the quail - so precious! Thanks for your recent visit to my blog. September is a good month to visit Montana - the larches and aspens will be in full color, but no snow yet (Hopefully).
