Whose legs?


A small verbal reward for the first correct guess...

Yes, folks, they belong to a Reddish Egret, photographed at South Padre Island, Texas. For more photos of Reddish Egret and more from Texas, scroll down and perhaps click on Older Posts at the bottom of the page. Thanks for all the guesses here and on Twitter.

Tricolored Heron or a Wood Stork

BW said...

Tricolored Herons have yellow legs as far as I know. And it ain't a Wood Stork.

Sorry, Jack, but Little Egrets tend to have yellow feet.
