Snowy Egret and Dragonfly

While viewing shore birds on Wednesday along the boardwalk at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center, I caught this sequence of a Snowy Egret grabbing a dragonfly out of the air.

We saw many water birds at this location including:
  • Snowy Egret
  • Common Gallinule, adult and juvenile
  • White Ibis
  • American Avocet
  • American White Pelican
  • Brown Pelican
  • Black-necked Stilt
  • Green Heron
  • Tricolored Heron
  • Great Egret
  • Great Blue Heron
  • Neotropic Cormorant, juvenile
  • American Coot
  • Pied-billed Grebe
  • Least Sandpiper
  • Black-bellied Whistling Duck
We thought we had seen a Sora, a bird I would like a "do over" on after my pictures at Balmorhea, but it turned out to be a juvenile Common Gallinule after looking at the pictures more closely.
