Malibu Lagoon: Snowy Egrets

Another favorite bird of mine at the Lagoon is the little Snowy Egret. They may not be as dramatic as the Great Egret but they are fascinating, charming and ridiculous to watch as they run backwards and forwards on the shore. They are totally cartoon birds. Also, they can be drama-queens, suddenly freezing, craning their necks and puffing up their crests when they sense danger. In this mode they remind me of Mearcats...
