derek_hutch A #GreatEgret (#ArdeaAlba) fishing along the banks of the #FeatherRiver in #YubaCity, #California. With populations distributed across North and South America as well as some locations in Europe, the Great #Egret, also known as the #CommonEgret or #GreatWhiteHeron, was almost hunted to extinction in the nineteenth century due to a large demand for its long white feathers for fashion and decoration. Some of the first conservatory laws protecting birds allowed the populations to recover over time.

nature_enthusiast__ This is a Great Egret in flight (also known as the Common Egret, but I call it a Great Egret because birds are pretty great!) I took this picture at Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge on a birding trip earlier this month. #bird #birds #birding #birdwatching #birdnerd #CommonEgret #Egret #Michigan #GreatEgret #Shiawassee #ShiawasseeNationalWildlifeRefuge #heron #wetlands #wildlife #summer #shorebirds #ornithology #nature #naturelover #outdoors #hiking 6mon
