Congratulations to the Our BirdSpotter People’s Choice winner Eileen Chorba of Beach Lake, PA! Though often found in coastal waters, Great Egrets can also live in inland freshwater wetlands. This one was happily hunting away when Eileen found it!
Eileen wrote about her photo: “I was watching the Great Egret as it waded near the water’s edge searching for fish, frogs, insects or snakes. Something must have gotten his attention and in an instant, he lifted from the rocks and flew a short distance away. I was very excited that I was able to capture several pictures of this beautiful Great Egret!”
Monday, January 15, is the first day to submit a photo to the BirdSpotter category Sweet for Suet. Biweekly People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice winners receive prizes from the Cornell Lab and our sponsor, Wild Birds Unlimited. Anyone can participate by entering a photo and voting for their favorites! Find out more about the BirdSpotter contest.
