Reddish Egret

I know, this one belongs in my heron's index. Two reasons it is here: 1) I've only seen this bird fishing with the shorebirds. Its behavior is very different from the others of its genus. In contrast to their methodical, stealthy, quiet stalking, this bird constantly jumps wildly around, spinning while lunging at fish. It is so much fun to watch. 2) I was lazy. It's a lot easier to add a large batch to a single index page!
