The beautifuil Eastern Great Egret is considered a subspecies of the great egret. In New Zealand it is known as the white heron or by its Māori name kōtuku.
The elegant Great Egret is a dazzling sight in many a North American wetland. Slightly smaller and more svelte than a Great Blue Heron, these are still large birds with impressive wingspans. They hunt in classic heron fashion, standing immobile or wading through wetlands to capture fish with a deadly jab of their yellow bill.
