A Great Egret was catching and eating frogs yesterday next to the road at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. This one didn't seem to care about the vehicles driving on the road. I was able to park across from it and take a bunch of photos. I saw it catch a couple of frogs and a few tadpoles. It was also able to catch a crayfish.
The refuge has been getting a lot of rain so these roadside ditches have water in them. The Frogs are using these areas and the Egrets are taking advantage of an easy meal.
This time of year is a great time to photograph Egrets and Great Blue Herons at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge. I was able to photograph a few of the Great Blue Herons yesterday but they were not close to the road as the Egrets.
Here is this same Great Egret: Great Egret With Crayfish
