An Egret Fishing at Myrtle Beach, 10 October 2015

There was an egret fishing in this little inlet created when the tide rolled out Saturday morning. It started out in one section on the northern side of the pedestrian bridge, but flew away without catching anything.

Possibly the same egret showed up several minutes later, downstream from where it was first seen. I zoomed in to get a better look.

Finally its patience paid off as a school of fish showed up, first as a disturbance in the water, but then visible below the surface.

Observe its behavior once it catches a fish. As one might imagine, it’s easier to recapture a fish on land than in the water should it drop the fish.

 

Flock of Seagulls, Three Different Views

Three separate videos featuring seagulls from Myrtle Beach, 9 October 2015.

Up first, a lone seagull walks with steely determination to nowhere in particular.

Next three to five seagulls peck around in a puddle left over from high tide.

Finally, a seagull frenzy as birds fly in an out and shuffle all around.

 

Pelican Preening, Myrtle Beach, SC, 8 October 2015

On our first day at Myrtle Beach, my brother pointed out this pelican. At first, it was crouched down and somewhat lethargic, but after I’d taken a walk around, I came back to discover it preening itself. It has a rather noticeable gash on its lower beak, which may hinder its ability to fish, and that might account for its behavior when I first saw it. Later, though, it took off flying over the water fishing.

Here’s how it looked when I first saw it. Quite a contrast from the video.
