On a Sunday more than a week ago, at the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge it was very windy and cold. As I drove by I saw a dozen egrets standing up on a bank of the marshes.
There were snowy egrets, like this one.
and great egrets, bigger but just as intimidated by the freezing wind chill.
A younger one ignored the cold and was actually trying to fish, twisting and slipping on the mud.
