I've was able to get out on the kayak at low tide a few days last week and found a Snowy Egret that had no qualms with my human presence. Snowys seem to be the least skittish wader to me but this little guy came within the minimum focusing distance of my 400 5.6 several times. I believe he/she may be a young bird based on the beak not yet being entirely black.

Thank you. It was a bit of a challenge since low tide on these two days was between noon and 1 p.m.
