I've seen these from the window.
Hard to miss considering they can reach more than 7 feet long!
The Great White Egret lives in the sunbelt of the USA down to South America.
Males, females, and juveniles all look the same.
They are part of the stork/pelican family.
They eat in shallow waters using their bill as a sharp spear to catch their
prey of fish, frogs, and small mammals.
At the end of the 19th century their numbers were greatly decreased as they were killed for their feathers to be put in ladies' hats. Conservation has been successful and their numbers are increasing.
