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.
Until next time…..

Great Egret in Breeding Plumage
During mating season when the Great Egrets start to build their nests, I wonder how they go about choosing just the right stick. It is so much fun to watch them hunting for, choosing and then delivering to their mate, just the right one. I took these photos at The Rookery at Smith Oaks, High Island, Texas.
Until next time…
Coming up next….
Fun at The Rookery
