Let It Snowy

As the temperature and humidity this week reached its Summer peak (hopefully), it was an easy decision to review images of Snowy Egrets captured at Siesta Key Beach in June.

The Snowy Egrets stole the show with their acrobatic performance at the Access #5 tidal pool.

As I recall, they didn’t have significant competition from other waders as seen previously. This might be attributable to the comparatively low water level.

Early migratory shorebirds are hopefully on their way in significant numbers. They will be ideally observed at Bunche Beach Preserve at a low tide well ahead of the afternoon thunderboomers.
