Great Egret at Humboldt Park in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on April 25, 2021

Stopping at Humboldt Park was a good choice today with a Great Egret present. It put on a beautiful show for the time I was there trying to get something to eat. Of the 4 times I watched it go for I assume fish it failed and eventually left the park out of sight. The morning started out cold and then the sun finally warmed things up with sunny skies, temps were around 32 degrees.

Perched here, looking and waiting for something to eat…showing its beautiful plumes…

Chasing something…

That catch failed and the egret heads back to the perch…

Flies to anther spot…

Another try and fails to get something to eat from what I think…

Perched pretty…

And to another location at the pond…

On the island waiting for something to come by…

    Now this is an image series that demonstrates your skill and talent. Beautiful captures of a beautiful bird. Wow man…

  3. As always. Excellent. Still waiting for the migration. Have not seen much. As old as I am, it might be one of the last. Need to get to Lake Park. Upper Lake Park. Do not walk well for lower, so keep your photos rolling in.

    I love the series of pictures. The egret has escaped me and my camera. I only hope I can do justice to the bird
