Description

A Reddish Egret exhibits it's unique way of fishing in the shallows at Fort Desoto county park. Holding it's wings extended, the bird creates a shadow on the water that attracts small fish and enables better visualization of the prey below the surface. The Reddish Egret displays often comical behavior as it dances, jumps, and hops about in pursuit of small fish.
