Great Egrets

Returning from a visit to the Arboretum this afternoon (Pileated Woodpecker, White-throated Sparrows etc) we chanced upon a pair of Great Egrets (Ardea alba) on the islet near the edge of the St-Lawrence River not far from the end of our road.

White birds are fearsomely hard to photograph, even more so if they have sunlight reflecting off water behind them but for all that I managed to get some acceptable record shots of them going about their business … and a short video clip as well.
