Species: Cattle Egret (Bubulcus Ibis) | Location: Mhow Madhya Pradesh, India
It was a humid day in June, the month the Indian monsoon breaks in most parts of India, including my state too.
I was out on a birding trip alone when I saw these cattle egrets (Bubulcus ibis), having an argument over some morsel. I was engrossed in the birds and their antics when suddenly I saw that the other bird (not in this frame) had apparently won the silly altercation....or so it seemed. With this fellow wildly gesticulating with it's claws and boy... If looks could kill!
The cattle egret, or Bubulcus ibis, as known among us birders, are in pure white plumage except in the breeding season when they get this yellow color. Gregarious, mostly seen with grazing cattle, stalking energetically alongside the animal. They thrive on grasshoppers, bluebottle flies, cicadas, and also frogs and lizards.
