Backyardigans



Our house stands in a swamp essentially. We don't have mosquitos though; this is a pleasant surprise. The man who owns the greenhouses that face our home also bring cattle, usually 2 or 3, to graze on the wetland grass. Recently we were also the home to a flock of these white birds.



Any ideas as to what species these birds are?

Can't really see them that well. With a bit of research using the Almighty Google, I think it is a Great Egret or a Snowy Egret.

Hmm, they look kind of like storks, Zaak. Are you sure you guys are just having ONE baby?? You may be in for a surprise...

Those white birds are snowy egrets, I believe. By the way, Happy Belated Birthday! I wish I was 31 again! Hope that Amber is feeling well and that she has a smooth, easy time of it. Good luck, to all of you!

Thank you all for participating. I will award the majority and declare them snowy egrets. I wonder... any good meat on them?
