  1. Lots of birds! It's that time of year...
    Yesterday there were several Canadian Geese dining in my neighbors front yard. Nice video! So many birds in it.

    1. Bill-- It's been quite a week for birding. We've never seen so many Great Egrets together before. And, yes that raft of Marble Godwits was pretty cool.

  5. Love those shots and enjoyed the different postures displayed in the video. Some minding their own business, others purely strutting.

    1. Patti-- We couldn't believe how many egrets were in that pond together, and all the sounds and posturing. It was grand!

  6. Gorgeous! I remember learning once that the collective noun for egrets is a congregation of egrets. If I remember correctly.

    1. Sabine-- Yes, I just googled it and the collective noun is congregation. That's so good to know. Thank you for that!

  7. Wonderful bird shots! What are those reddish brown ones four photos up?
    There are some great-looking ones up here on nearby Green Lake called shovelers, ducks with big shovel bills. They swim in circles in big groups, stirring up food.

    1. isabelita-- So glad you liked the photos. Those birds are Cinnamon Teal. They are found in the western US and do spend summers in Washington, but winter along the California coast. Ah, you remind me to start looking for Shovelers, they winter here too!

  8. The sounds, the struts, and a new definition for me; really like that term congregation for the birds. Made me think of a church congregation that also includes all types of behaviors. Thanks for sharing. Kim in PA

    1. Kim-- Isn't it interesting that a group of egrets is called a congregation. I liked learning that too!
