Catching Itself After Falling


A fledging snowy egret catches itself after a fall.
This fledgling snowy egret was trying to fly from branch to branch when I saw it fall. It successfully grabbed long stringy branches that hang down from the eucalyptus tree where they nest. It slowly made its way up to higher branches. I photographed this bird at the W. 9th St. rookery in Santa Rosa, CA.
