Big Birds at Sherburne WMA

Another revisit to some of the bird images from Sherburne WMA outside Baton Rouge, LA.   This time focusing on some of the large subjects that frequent the area.  

Little Blue Heron

Great Egret

Green Heron

White Ibis - immature

Little Blue Heron - immature 
(interesting that the previous two are such negative images of the adult plumage versions of their species) 

Cattle Egret

That was quiet a total for the Heron/Egrets in one day, from previous posts I had also counted Great Blue and Tricolored on that day.  I was also on the lookout for Roseate Spoonbills, but they eluded me on this trip and remain high on the wish list.  Will return for at least one more Sherburne post featuring shorebirds, but may jump ahead to Grand Isle between now and then.
