When I think of Egrets in Baja California Sur, Mexico


I usually think about birds like the Great Egret or Snowy Egrets.  The bird pictured here is a Reddish Egret.  This bird is new to me.  I’d really like to see it in breeding plumage.  Breeding adult has a shaggy mane on rufous head and neck.  Bill is pink with black tip and it’s legs are cobalt blue.(WoW)!  A white morph adult may resemble a Cattle Egret.  While feeding, this heron lurches flashing it’s wings like a canopy to confuse prey.
