Birding on a stormy day

When we arrived on the Island yesterday an unexpected storm rolled in. This put a damper on our beach excursion but opened the door for us to do some birding. We live near one of the most premier birding sites on the east coast. Today we were able to find and identify quite a few shore birds. Here are the highlights:
  Great Egret

Cattle Egret

Glossy Ibis



Laughing Gull

We had a great time on our bird expedition.  The storm tranformed the Island into a mystical realm, it's beauty was breathtaking.

You got some good shots of the birds. We have small egrets near us. I can see now why they are called small!
