One of the creatures that didn’t so much cross my path as follow it was a Cattle Egret that seemed to think my car was a suitable substitute for cows. And, when a Leopard Frog moved to escape my car, the Cattle Egret was proven correct. But I wasn’t done with Cattle Egret yet! Brown Anoles are a pretty squiggly meal.

The real shock came, when at the last minute, I realized that they were not Greater Egrets , nor the smaller Snowy Egrets , but Cattle Egrets – Bubulcus ibis. With one chance to fire off a quick shot, my camera fixed with the 500MM lens, thru the trees over my head, I was rewarded with a blurry, terrible shot, of Cattle Egrets !

They believed there was potential for sheep in those days, but now there are only cattle. The cattle are a cross breed of Brahman and shorthorn, so they can withstand the extreme weather. There are cattle stations around Broome that are on both sides of the highway going either north or south. It is a truly magnificent sight.

Whenever we make a trip to Derby we pull over seven kilometres before we get to town at Myalls Bore and the 120 metre long cattle trough. We have seen the cattle trough enough times to know there is not a lot of bird-life using it, because it is easier for the birds to use the water that overflows from the bore to make a wetland.

It is on your left and you will no doubt either see the birdlife in the area or notice the cattle wandering on the edge of the highway. The cattle tend to wander beside the edge of the highway in areas where the fences have failed and they are also attracted to the water at the borrow pits.

The often overlooked Cattle Egret has legs that turn bright pink during this brief courtship period. Our trees do not turn from green to orange as in temperate regions, but the onset of courtship plumage gives rise to an equally extravagant burst of colour – albeit on a much more minute scale!

Cattle Egret. Doing what cattle egrets do: communicating with cattle, even though these tend to be somewhat dull conversation partners. Not a great shot, admittedly, but a great-looking bird. Brown-headed Barbet. Some day, I will have to write a post just about barbets. Brown Rock Chat. Power to the ordinary people and birds.

They were busy feeding around the cattle water trough that the cattle can’t get to unless they want wet hooves! Due to the high concentration of both tadpoles and frogs there are hundreds of Whiskered Terns now in the area and they are likely to breed. Whiskered Terns in flight.

One of the threats to the Blood Pheasant comes from overgrazing by cattle. The paper describing this then daringly suggests that these preferences might be related to food availability. So, researchers looked at the habitat use of Blood Pheasants as related to the presence of livestock.

The cattle moved away from the flooded areas and the area beside the highway is home to many species of birds. This resulted in no large flocks of Oriental Pratincoles in the area during the past few months and less Terns than in other years when there have been more locusts present.

The Cattle Egret (or Eastern Cattle Egret , to be exact, but that would mess with my alphabetic order) can be seen in farmland around Shanghai. Instead of cattle, it nowadays often follows tractors ploughing the fields and thus stirring up small animals. A thoroughly modern bird.

When I returned to the small dam where there had been so many Australian Wood Ducks earlier in the day I discovered that the eleven cows had been joined by two Cattle Egrets. There had been quite a few Cattle Egrets in the area until recently and so it was good to see them for the first time in 2020. Two Cattle Egrets with four cows!

Cattle have been in the area and so there will be small remaining pools from their hoof prints if rain does not come to the area soon just like last time. Spinifex Pigeons cautiously working their way down to the water. A bush full of Zebra Finch . The water level has been higher for the birds and marked the rocks.

At least the quote above gives me a good reason to show a few more very common Shanghai birds … such as Grey Heron … … (a species prone to siblicide under specific conditions ) … … Cattle Egret … … (in the bad old days of ornithology – around 1970, to be more specific – a study of the food consumed (..)

He and his friend Seth did find one good bird at Jacob Riis Park, a continuing Cattle Egret , which is common across large chunks of the world but was only Corey’s sixth sighting in New York State, with the fifth having been the same individual bird during the week last week. How about you?

But all this changed with the arrival of Europeans, and their cattle. Also, as ranchers increasingly moved their free-range cattle into feedlots, they settled down and became incredibly numerous. The Brown-headed “Bison-birds” learned to be Cowbirds, and expanded their range coast-to-coast, and into almost all of Mexico.

There are always stray cattle to watch out for, but we prefer to minimize the risk of hitting animals by leaving on road trips until a couple of hours after sunrise. Cockatoo Creek had stopped flowing many months ago, but the water that remained was a good water source for the cattle in the area and also the birdlife.

Attempting a photograph of the cattle beside the highway was pointless, because you only got photographs of locusts! Recently the highway has been covered in locusts and you can’t avoid them. It did not matter which way you looked there were thousands of locusts. The recent swarms of locusts.

One cattle footprint full of water can mean survival for many bird species. If you look at my post on a Pilbara pool you will see that even the smallest amount of water is worth checking out. The same applies when you come further north to the Kimberley in Western Australia.

i got my fill of cygnets and goslings this weekend, but the best sighting was an adult Cattle Egret that apparently didn’t realize how far Upstate New York was from wherever it should be. July birding in the Northern Hemisphere may be slow, but you’ve got to love those adorable baby birds!

One of the remaining birds is known to frequent Joe Overstreet Road, a dirt road that runs a few miles through sod farms and cattle pastures between Canoe Creek Road and Lake Kissimmee in Keenansville,about an hour south of Orlando. The first farm on the left, where all the cattle are? He likes it there. Sure, the looks were distant.

Here, nervous Cattle Egrets trying to quit smoking pace restlessly on buffalos. The closest we got to habitat similar to Dongfang was on the last day of the trip, close to Haikou airport, at Dongzhai. This is an area of narrow, slightly elevated roads passing muddy fields and the occasional fishpond.

Cattle Egrets using public transport. Alone time. Taking a bath …. And drying on a giraffe with your friends. What a life. Kingfishers – the poor man`s Pittas? African Pygmy Kingfisher. Brown-hooded Kingfisher. ” The Red-billed Quelea is regarded as the most numerous undomesticated bird on earth.

One guide has been taking care of cattle. ” We are currently offering the opportunity of a lifetime to see a Harpy Eagle that is nesting in the Amazon lowlands, and guides are ready to work! Birding guides have been working hard to keep trails open at the lodges. Another – raising and selling trout to survive.

We were even more delighted as we followed some cattle tracks to discover not only more bird species than we had hoped, but also more Yellow-billed Spoonbills. That was our first Yellow-billed Spoonbill for 2021, so that was exciting in itself.

Wedge-tailed Eagle -bigger than the cattle!? A fourth Wedge-tailed Eagle was perched on one of the posts as we drove across the plains. We also observed our first Swamp Harrier for 2021.

A local cattle station out of town received 652mm in the same 24 hour period, so we got off lightly! In one hour in the evening, amongst all the thunder and lightning, 88mm of rain fell and by the morning we had received 326mm of rain. So, over a 48 hour period we had received 564mm of rain as compared to 338mm for the whole of 2021.

Cattle Egrets are thoroughly modern birds – they were among the first species to ditch mailed letters for faxes, then switched to email early, and now (at least in China) mostly communicate by WeChat. They are also early adopters with regard to their foraging – nowadays mostly following tractors rather than cattle.

There had to be at least 100 or more, and when I got closer, I was excited to find several Cattle Egrets ( Bubulcus ibis ), a species of which a decent photograph had always eluded me. There were not only Cattle Egrets and Great Egrets ( Ardea alba ) but Snowy Egrets ( Egretta thula ) as well.
