Reddish Egret Hunting

Just a quick post today of a white morph Reddish Egret hunting. I came across this file the other day while going through some of my older images.

While I lived in Florida I simply adored being able to photograph Reddish Egrets, they can be graceful or goofy looking, they twirl, dash and dance. This bird; in nonbreeding plumage, was hunting along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico and gave me quite a show.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.


  1. You framed this well-with the layers of surf in the background.

  2. Great photo Mia! Reddish Egret hunting is always so entertaining to watch.

  3. I love the pose, particularly the way he has his feathers. I never get tired of seeing white morph Reddish Egrets. Wonderful birds.
