photogmb The #greategret (#Ardea alba), also known as the #commonegret, #largeegret or (in the Old World) #greatwhiteheron, is a large, widely distributed #egret. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, in southern Europe it is localized. In North America it is widely distributed, and it is ubiquitous across the Sun Belt of the United States and in the Neotropics. The Old World population is often referred to as the #greatwhiteegret. This species is sometimes confused with the great white heron of the Caribbean, which is a white morph of the closely related great blue heron (A. herodias). 2w

nmt7 Also known as a #CommonEgret, and (locally) #American #Egret. This is the #largest of the three white egrets, and as the name would indicate, the most widespread and numerous. The #Great Egret sports a bright #yellow bill, and dark #black #legs.

During #breeding season, the #male Great Egret develops a #green #color around the #eyes, and a #beautiful wispy #plume of #feathers, which #drape over its #back and well past its #tail. #birdwatching #birding #nature #natgeo #Canon #600d #birds #india #mumbai #greeneyes
