Reddish Egrets come in two wonderful varieties, a dark morph and a white morph, both with equal amounts of spunk. White morphs are a little harder to find, so they are extra special to see. They may at first look a little like Great Egrets, but Great Egrets have a mostly yellow bill, while there's no yellow on a Reddish Egret bill. Great Egrets also have black legs, and Reddish Egrets do not. I love seeing these guys in full breeding plumage with blue lores, bill and legs.
Love the breeding plumage Scott. A species (any morph) I've never photographed but I understand they make wonderful subjects, especially when hunting.ReplyDelete
