Stan - great shot! This photo also got me wondering - Do both parents feed their young? And I wonder if there is a definitive way to tell a mother egret from a father egret? Either way - excellent photo.

Thanks,  Wade.  As far as I know, the male is larger than the female, but no way of really knowing unless a mated pair is next to each other.  I have only seen one bird in the nests at any time doing the feeding, so guessing that's the female.
