Juvenile Snowy Egret or White Heron TSC Birds

Juvenile Snowy Egret or White Heron     TSC Birds
I used an older photo as right now I am a bit homebound. I am a bird and nature photographer and many of my shots are of sea birds taken from a boat or the shore.

This is a juvenile snowy egret or snowy white heron, not to be mistaken for his relative the Great White Egret (in the notes). I also posted a photo of his closer cousin, the night heron.

All of these are sea birds. They fish and eat small bait fish in waterways in our area and throughout the east coast. I have seen the night heron eat crabs and other live critters on the shore. They are all fascinating to watch and photograph.

Claudine Gaulier-Denis, LutzP, Wierd Folkersma, Lynne and 10 other people have particularly liked this photo

All fabulous shots Coco although if I had to pick a favourite it would be the Great White Egret in the Notes! :)

Out of interest did the 70-300mm lens come with the camera or did you buy it separately? And if so would you mind me asking how much such a lens might cost? :)

The 70-300 did not come with my camera. It's a few hundred dollars I believe. Bought it a long time ago. It's great with bird photography. Good luck.
