Great White Egrets usually pair for life,during the breeding season both males and females develop a delicate cloak of long white feathers that extend over their backs.Great Egrets reach maturity at 2 years and can live for 22 years. Today, the greatest threat is the destruction of their wetland habitat (draining, pollution, drought and floods).
