Best Place to Feed a Fish to an Egret (2008)


Haiku birds of the city landscape, egrets are as studious as pigeons at panhandling. Poised on one leg on the shore of PROSPECT PARK LAKE, the snowy white freeloaders wait for an urban angler to snag a catch. Then they stalk for a handout. To watch the outline of a fish make its way down the long, thin throat of an egret in New York is to witness nature's improbability.
