Great Egret

Egret
The great egret is a large slender white heron that lives in North, Central, and South America, east Europe, Africa, and North Asia. It’s habitat are fresh and salt-water wetlands, marshy ponds, and tidal flats. It eats fish, amphibians, small animals, and insects. In the late nineteen and early twentieth centuries many were killed by plume hunters but soon recovered due to protection efforts.
