Cattle Egret photo-shoot (5 photos)


Another fun day at Wakodahatchee Wetlands. Here are some interesting facts about Cattle Egrets…

Unknown in North America prior to 1952, it is now abundant over much of the continent. It spread from Africa to northeastern South America in the 1870s and 1880s; more recently it has colonized Australasian region. Unlike other herons and egrets, this species typically feeds in dry fields, often following cattle (or other animals) and waiting for them to flush insects into view.
