Cattle Egret with Nesting Material
Arkansas River, Mulberry, Arkansas
A Cattle Egret flies across the Arkansas River near Mulberry, Arkansas carrying nesting material to a rookery on an island. Hundreds of Cattle Egrets and scores of Little Blue Herons and Great Egrets nest in the summer on this island upstream of Ozark, Arkansas near the mouth of the Mulberry River. Photo © copyright by J.
