Last Spring I introduced you to Mr. and Mrs. Roseate Spoonbill – Samuel and Rose, and to Mr. and Mrs. Great Egret – Eugene and Louise.
Well, guess what, they are back to entertain you in my “Just the Right Stick” photo play, which comes to you from The Rookery at Smith Oaks, High Island, Texas.
Here is Eugene, hunting for a stick, or so we think, to bring to his mate Jeez Louise. If you remember, Eugene calls her Jeez Louise, because she is never satisfied. Notice his complete focus throughout his endeavor.

Hi Theresa! Thanks, they were fun to watch. I was only there for one afternoon, but it was exciting to see these birds coming in to nest. I hope you enjoyed your day today!
Great shots of the stick collecting. Happy Easter!
Gunilla, Happy Easter to you and yours! I hope you had a blessed day. It was a fun experience to witness the stick collecting – don’t know the rhyme or reason for some of their behavior. It would be interesting to understand it. Thanks for stopping by!
Great story and shots. HAPPY EASTER.
Happy Easter to you and yours Margaret. Thank you so much. I hope you are having great birding experiences!
