Two Birds Looking Aside
This colony is cool because the birds are stand on top of bamboo trees, not on a remote rock like many Canadian colonies.

The lack of plumes (long feathers) and the season says this is the non-breeding plumage. The dark feet say juvenile to me.

Species: Egretta garzetta (Little Egret)
