“On a quiet marsh road adjacent to the San Francisco Bay in Redwood City, Snowy Egrets feed their newly hatched young:

Notes:

-Snowy Egrets are the smallest of local egrets.

-The begging sounds the chicks make reminded me of Donald Ducks voice flutter

-Nesting in the same tree were Black Crowned Night Herons and a Great Egret

-I estimate over 50 Snowy Egret nests in this colony”
