Reddish Egrets

Last night I did a SEANET survey. This is better know as long walks on the beach looking for dead stuff. Fortunately, I did not find any dead birds but I did see Reddish Egrets dancing in the surf. These birds are becoming more common especially in the summer. We had one on Jekyll as well. They are fascinating to watch as the twirl and jump in the surf.

I did find this dead ray. Sad to see but still fascinating to know that right out there in the ocean there is a whole new world.
