Reddish Egret

Egretta rufescens

Description:

One of my favorite birds! The Reddish Egret is a large wading bird (30") with a shaggy, rufousy neck, black-tipped pink bill, and gray body plumage. Young birds are similar, but washed out in color and less shaggy on the neck. Reddish Egrets are known for their feeding dance, which consists of them prancing around in shallow water and flapping their wings about, attracting fish.

Habitat:

Wetlands
