PIC OF THE WEEK: 07/13/09 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2009 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Cattle Egret

(Bubulcus ibis)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge

Notes: I am always excited to photograph a new species and equally driven when I have the opportunity to capture improved images that ones previously taken. This spring plumage bird was strutting along the grassy edges of the thicket looking for grasshoppers and seemed undisturbed by my vehicle passing by. This species has the unique distinction from other North American egrets and heron by favoring open grasslands, fields and lawns. It associates with livestock, which is where it gets its name from. Its prey is primarily insects disturbed by the animal's grazing activity. Its peach colored head and belly patched are distinctive of its breeding plumage.
