Another amazing shot from the master! Great story and incredible detail...

Do Anhingas & Great Egrets often compete for perches, food, etc?

Amazing how the Great Egret left. I once watched a blue jay carry on trying to get a raven to leave a telephone pole. The raven ignored the much smaller jay until it was good and ready to leave. It amazed me how the jay never backed down to the much larger bird.

One small island in Wakodahatchee has Anhingas, Cormorants, Great Blue Herons, and Great Egrets competing for rookery space. I will try to capture a photo on my next visit to show what is nesting where.
