New Bird in the Neighborhood

These pictures were taken on 4/2/10 but I couldn't post them because I didn't know what the bird was.  I knew it looked like a Blue Heron and in fact it is of that family of birds.  It is referred to in different ways but they all lead up to an Egret or a White Egret or even a Great White Egret. There is a post that I follow because the gentleman that has it does real justice to photography of birds. 

Little did I know that we only lived about 4 miles apart for 22 years before I moved out of that area about 12 years ago. This is a link to Abe's site and yes, this is his real name...http://mybirdsblog.blogspot.com/.

Abe tells me in an email that it is mating season and that their plumage will change. In the attached link to allaboutbirds I believe you can see images of the long feather exentions.

Thanks very much for the nice comment you left me on my wordpress blog.

I came to your blog and looked at the post today and I like the photos of the new bird in the neighborhood. I was reading the sidebar and saw my birds blog listed and clicked it and it went nowhere. I checked the link and it goes to an old post I had.

If you would like to change it to

http://mybirdsblog.blogspot.com/

it would then work.

You asked about what I used on some of the artwork on my blogs.

I answered there but here too.

Yes, I use Photoshop. I also have Corel Draw and Paint. And Photoshop Elements. And I also have Paint Shop Pro. I have Gimp and also another program mostly for Mac but can't remember what it is.
