Tonight we will look at another white bird. Unlike last night's white bird, this one is suppose to be white! I found you a Great Egret who was hanging out in a tree watching a lake. Once hundreds of these birds came to the private lake where I am, but not too many in the last 3 years. I found this guy at Scott Lake. I tried to get several angles so you can see his skinny neck! These birds are very graceful in flight and on top of trees. I have shared Wikipedia info below about this fine waterbird. You see how easy it is to learn something new everyday! Enjoy!
What is he looking at?

Now You see him!
This is even closer. He is standing in the treetop.
