Back to TX: Cattle Egret flocks

These are a few of my pics of birds in the Rio Grande Valley I took a few weeks ago. Though we see Cattle Egrets in Colorado, I don't usually get the opportunity to get within 75 feet of a feeding flock like this one. They would forage then something would disturb them and they would fly a little further to feed again. As can be seen in these pics, I wasn't seen as a big threat as this flock was flying generally towards me.
It's really awesome to see large numbers of many species that are only seen singly or in small numbers in Colorado. SeEtta
