Egrets & Herons
Lots of great types of egrets, great, reddish, cattle, snowy...
In MN we get mostly great egrets and I usually get them while kayaking in our many great lakes and rivers but you don't need a kayak to see them flying overhead or standing on the shore of most lakes.
Every time I hit the kayak I know I'm going to see a great blue heron sitting/hiding on the shore of the many lakes and river I kayak. I try and just hang out watching and hoping they just stay put. One of my favorite places to see them is at Pig's Eye Lake on the Mississippi, near my house.
In addition to the various herons we have here in MN I've been fortunate to photograph them in FL.
