Egret~World Bird Wednesday~032812


I took the grandson (he's 3...) through one of the avaries at the Living Desert Reserve last Sunday.  Hubby and I were babysitting him for the day and we love to take him there to see the trains and animals.  He wasn't too impressed by the birds, but I saw this lovely egret there.  I appreciated the fact that he was showing off his beautiful, lacy feathers!  Aren't they graceful?  World Bird Wednesday for March 28, 2012.  To visit WBW, please follow this link:    http://pineriverreview.blogspot.com/

  1. No wonder a bird like this almost went extinct because of the desire to accessorize with those beautiful long feathers. Nice to introduce your grandson to birding.
