After the kingfisher sight, I thought it was the best moment in my birding life. But I was wrong. See if you can guess from the pictures below before I tell more.
Seems like the Great Egret was waiting patiently,
Oh no, something in his mouth ??
And the thing from mouth is gone. Do you see his swelled neck ?
If you still did not guess, let me tell you – As we approached the shoreline pond, this great egret was waiting patiently and we were wondering why. Maybe just another day, I thought . Suddenly there was a movement in the grass and guess what – there is something in the egrets mouth and egret is dunking it into the water. On the close-up shot, we saw Egret swallowing the whole mouse. And in a minute it was all gone. See the swelled-up neck – thats right – a little mouse is there. It sure likes its meal clean!
So, to my surprise I witnessed live, A Great Egret having its breakfast!
P.S. Thanks mom for helping me!
