The egret came to scrounge up breakfast, stalking little fishes and tadpoles at pond's edge

Lilo, you almost seem to live in a nature sanctuary! Plus, you have a good eye for spotting things. I wouldn't have thought of an egret as being a bird found in your area.

That's a great photo, glad
you caught it.
Many years ago, a huge egret landed at our small built in spa here in the burbs. It sat there for a couple of minutes, but not long enough to get my camera out and take a pic.
BTW, there is also a couple of egrets that frequent one our local parks early in the morning. There are no water features in that park. A local told me that the egrets come to hunt for small animals.

WG, yes, they do hunt mice and frogs and lizards, but refer to dig into the water (on the edge) and snag whatever they can get, I guess they like their food wet, if possible.

Lilo, thank you-----one of my favorite water birds.

We have a number of Great Blue Herons----incredible, unforgettable silhouettes!
