Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis)

 

A Cattle Egret. One of my favorite birds. This one has his mating feathers and is very handsome indeed. The younger ones look very punish when their  beautiful crown feathers start to fill in. They are aptly named and can often be found in pastures among the cattle.  ❧
