Great Egret at the Charles River Peninsula

Great Egret, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
Ordinarily not a bird to get super excited about. But although I've seen great egrets downstream on the Charles in Newton, I've never ever seen one at the CRP. (This is what I guess you might call "patch excitement.")

It wasn't hunting. Just perching and doing the normal egret-y things. I was surprised the red-winged blackbirds didn't come after it.
