Crested ibis, egrets, wagtails in China

Little egrets, 6 April 2018

After 5 April 2018 came 6 April. Still in Yangxian county, Shaanxi province, China. After our day at the golden pheasant hide, now river birds. Like the little egrets on this photo.

These egrets were at the Hanshui river close to Hanzhong city. Before arriving there, we saw crested ibis sculptures on city lamp posts.

It took the bird some time to eat the frog.

There were also smaller birds, like a snipe. And a plumbeous water redstart. A greenshank. A common sandpiper. A common kingfisher. A tree sparrow.
