There were about 100 egrets in Heislerville this weekend. They seem to hang around in April/May before moving on to a final destination for the summer. Unfortunately, they were in the best area to shoot during a high, bright sun and nowhere to be seen there as the sun got lower.

Huh-always thought of a Snowy as a solitary sort, now I know better. Thanks for posting.

They are far more entertaining in groups, especially during the breeding season. They can be very ornery. I often see them hunting together in pairs, or as a trio. I guess they go wherever the food is.

I don't think I've ever seen GBHs hunting together, though.
