Cows of several colors hanging out on rolling plains.
Seen on a farm in the Hawaiian highlands (altitude >2500 ft).
A cattle egret also joined in.
I know they have a "pecking order" just like chickens. There was never any doubt about who the boss of the herd was. Egret "drivers." That's funny. I'll think of that every time I see one now. Thanks for the chuckle Mauna.
I like when egrets sit on the cattle. They look like they’re driving. :) Anytime, Tukup. Did you know that cows have best friends? They preferentially spend time with certain partners in the herd! https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailyma...
Growing up on an Iowa farm, cattle were very commonplace, but now, here in Ecuador as in Hawaii, often they are accompanied by Egrets. That's cool. No Egrets in Iowa :-) Thanks for sharing Mauna.
