Snowy Egrets Fighting

Two snowy egrets had a turf battle yesterday.
The fight lasted about 20 seconds.
This great white egret left when the fighting started.

The Carmel River Lagoon was popular with snowy white egrets and great white egrets yesterday. In fact, it was crowded which led to a turf battle between two snowies. I’ve never seen a squabble before–it was so heated that the larger egrets left the area. The battle lasted about 20 seconds before calm was restored. No injuries.
