Great Egret (Ardea alba)

Titus Millpond, Apr 23, 2021 // Pelham Bay Park, May 19, 2019

First seen in Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary in India while our guide was looking for Siberian Cranes. We weren't into birds back then, and didn't know what these were.

We've also seen them in NJ, Massachusetts, Louisiana, Texas, Florida, Cuba, Tanzania, and closer to home in Westchester.
