"The Masked Bandit"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
Another first for me is seeing the white egret during breeding season. Usually the area on each side of the bird's head between the upper base of the beak and the eye is yellow. This area is referred to as the lore. During mating season, the lore is a beautiful shade of green.
For spring break this year, I went to the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge. There were several photographers there photographing the various birds building their nests in the brush over Woody pond. This egret went into the woods to break off a branch to build its nest.
