To continue our egret theme of last weekend, here is the fourth egret seen during my walks. Really, these were all different animals!
This is the nest near the Great Marsh boat dock which has some chicks. The mom, I think, is shown here. This was taken a couple minutes after the osprey pictured in the previous post delivered a freshly caught fish.
Last weekend as we departed the Great Marsh, we heard a cry from above. Then we saw this osprey flying back and forth over the marsh with a definite interest in my presence. It turned out that he was bothered how close I was to a nest in a tree near me. Once I walked away from this tree, he (I am sure this was the male counterpart of the family as the mom was already sitting in the nest protecting chicks) flew over to the nest.
