Cattle Egret and Frog
We thought we were watching a young, juvenile egret, but an experienced birder told us it was a cattle egret. A little bit rare for this area. The cattle egret is quite short and spends most of its time in fields rather than streams or ponds. I couldn't believe it when all of a sudden it had a large frog that it was flinging around. Good for the egret! Not so good for the frog.
