Great Eastern Egret Fishing at Chilka

Chilka Lake which is around 55 kms from Puri is home for many birds. We went boating in the lake for around 4 hours and could see few birds.


One such bird is Great Eastern Egret trying to fish in the fishing net. Here are few glimpses of the same.

I can see why the bird is drawn to this fishing spot but watch those feet in the net...

hope he doesn't get caught in it!

Nice images of the Egret but I do hope it never gets caught up in the nets.

Surely he will not catch fish through the net! Have a great weekend.

Ha, we have egrets here in the USA as well. They love to fish.
Here's an interesting story: Recently, one of those stupid drones, the delivery kind, passed over a nearby lake. Spoiled all the fishermen's fun because the shadow of the drone looked like an egret and chased away all the fish from the shore! How about that? Thank you for nice photos. Yo-Ma Ma

A beautiful egret, and great pics. Could you throw some light on those nets? I don't understand what they're for, they don't seem to be suitably located for catching fish..

That's a pretty smart egret. Hopefully it has more experiences not getting tangled in the net!
