Reddish Egret

I have previously posted about the Reddish Egret’s feeding dance. The species, found from our Gulf Coast and along both coasts of Mexico and Central America, is our least common heron. Only some 2000 pairs remain in the United States (Lowther and Paul 2002). As previously mentioned, this species comes in a dark and a white phase. In our country, dark birds are more often observed.  White morphs are more common in the Greater Antilles.
