Thanks Hunjoro, how interesting. So we have the same birds here as they have at PP. They are very pretty birds. I have seen them driving through AL to GA, there is alot of farming with cattle through that area.

Elllie at PP, great pics Debby of the birds....thanks. There were sure a lot of the white ones this morning. They reminded me of cattle egrets.

Calista, they are cattle egrets. I found this information at a Cornell website:

The Cattle Egret is native to Africa and Asia, and only reached the Americas in the late 19th century. It was first found in northeastern South America in 1877, having probably arrived there from Africa. It reached the United States in 1941, and started nesting by 1953. In the next 50 years it became one of the most abundant of the North American herons. It has occurred all the way to Alaska and Newfoundland, and has bred in nearly all states.
