I know they are common in southern regions, but we only see them occasionally. This time, there was a large flock following a tractor that was pulling a mower. I think I saw one eating a mouse, but can't be sure.

Cattle egrets are very rare where I am. To see a, well, whole flock of them really, is amazing. Great shots, Nancy.

Thanks, Levina! The shot just shows a portion of the whole flock. At first I thought they were the usual gulls that tend to follow tractors, but then realized my mistake.
