Great White Egret

Great egret is a familiar sight in wetland habitats across most of the U.S. but it is relatively rare in Canada. It is nearly as tall as the Great blue Heron but much lighter and more delicate.

in high breeding condition, adults sport vivid grass green loral skin and long nuptial plumes on their backs.

  • A group of egrets has many collective nouns, including a “congregation”, “heronry”, “RSVP”, “skewer”, and “wedge” of egrets.

VOICE Similar to the Great Blue Heron but uninflected, lower and less resonent; Breeding bird gives ducklike gabbling
