KY Color / Birds of KY: Great Egrets on Crocus Creek

2010-08-06 - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge. Hopewell Acres on Crocus Creek, Amandaville, Cumberland Co., KY
All the Flock Together For the first time I was able to photograph the entire congregation of eight Great Egrets on Crocus Creek. These are spectacular birds which have less fear of man than their fish eating cousins, Great Blue Herons. For any of you who have travelled down South very much I know you have noticed Egrets in many pastures of Northern and Central Florida. Some of these may have been Cattle Egrets but I remember them to be mostly Great Egrets. The Cattle Egrets are smaller than but somewhat similar to the Great Egret.
