Sharing a set of three photographs here, of common egrets and a crow.
This was shot at a beach in a town called Mukka, about 16 km north of Mangalore off NH 17. This is a very quiet beach, frequented by the local fisher folk, and sees very few visitors. Which means it is devoid of junk like wafer packets, beer bottles, etc. that people usually leave behind. However the area is laden with small-time factories, and these let out their waste right onto the beach (hopefully they process it well to make it less harmful), which lends a very 'fishy' odour. And many of these birds are seen feasting on such waste. These birds clearly were used to human presence, as they didn't seem to care however close I got to them.
