Egret~World Bird Wednesday~022212
I found a new meme today...World Bird Wednesday! I'm so excited to find this! As some of you know, I have several other blogs and one one of them, Deserts and Beyond, I've been documenting my "duck adventures". But, you know, the desert around Deep Canyon has many other birds. On Saturday when I visited the Living Desert Reserve, I stopped in both aviaries to check out what birds were there. Both had cattle egrets. These long-legged birds are seen all over our desert and sometimes I see them out in the fields, along with cattle. Often, they are just there in small groups. I see them frequently on my morning walks along the golf course. So, here are my photos of the egrets at the Living Desert. World Bird Wednesday for February 22, 2012.

By the way, I did spot a vulture on the top of the mountain Saturday, gliding out by Coyote Canyon, but by the time I was able to grab my camera, it was GONE! Maybe next time...
