Here’s a beautiful snowy egret. This one was up in a tree near Dana Point harbor that was egret central. There must have been at least a dozen of them nesting there. This was great for taking photos, but the price was a car covered with bird droppings. I really should have parked a little farther away.

Plus we have a bonus picture today: a snowy egret using its aileron flaps to slow down for a landing near its nest. Our little egret baby is obviously looking forward to lunch. Yum yum!

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
