Large heron with light pink bill, topped in black. Comes in two color morphs: white morph is all white, dark morph has blue/gray body and rufous neck and head.
Most salt-water dependent of North American herons. Resident of Gulf Coast and Pacific Coast from Florida to northern South America.
Reddish Egrets come in either a white or dark color morph, regardless of sex. As is the case for many birds with color morphs, a mated pair may be of uniform or mixed color, and a single nest can contain chicks of both plumages.
