A ticking off

A triad of cattle egrets scouring the area for food, which in their case is insects, frogs and small mammals.

These birds are so common that we sometimes tend to overlook them, but they are real beauties and I get a lot of pleasure just watching them as they go about their business.

They are often overlooked, but everybody notices them when they move into a tree in front of your place to nest in.
