Bird of the Week … Who am I???

As you may know, every Sunday we publish a weekly “Bird of the Week” blog.  Today we’d like to test your knowledge by asking this question:

What bird can be seen late summer and early fall at North Beach on Seabrook Island acting like a drunken sailor by performing a fascinating dance as it fishes in shallow salt water and stalks the fish by running, jumping, staggering and flapping it’s wings? It will also spread it’s wings to reduce the glare on the water so it can better see to spear the fish.

Leave us a comment if you want to make a guess – and watch for the full article on Sunday morning!

    1. Interesting Janie … Although the Tricolor Heron has been known to do this … there is another bird, often confused as a Tricolor that is more well-known to have this behavior … Guess again or wait until Sunday’s post!


      1. What about a reddish egret? I’ve also seen and took pictures of one of these on North Beach.
