A Moment in Nature Great White Egret

Great Egret (Ardea alba)

I never for a day gave up listening to the songs of our birds, or watching their peculiar habits, or delineating them in the best way I could. John James Audubon

a sample of observing & recording birds I see on my morning bike ride

bird of prey perched on highest pine

constantly searching for food

Predator constantly listening and understanding prey to ensure next meal

One last prune and then fly across the field high in an oak tree to hunt prey

Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird – Sir David Attenborough
