The little white egret

Now the heronry has hatched most of the eggs   the Nile is becoming like a snow patch    some are too young to fly and most perish on the first day of falling out of the nest,  or even pushed out of the nest,  many  I saw with broken wings   most survive the fall and make for the open waters of the Nile  then stand at the waters edge wondering what is next.
some like this little one head out into the murky waters and find a log or flotsam to stand on  this one has a broken wing    and had to struggle to get to safety.for the rest of the photos click on the link

So sad to think of the ones that don't make it. I wouldn't be able to watch them. I'd be so frustrated wanting to help.
