Today's Bird: The Reddish Egret

Today's Bird is the Reddish Egret.  They come in two different colors--the one you see here (dark morph) and an all-white version (white morph).  When you see the white morph, you have to double check that it isn't a Great Egret, another all white bird with the same structure.  Bill color and leg color are the best indicators.  Reddish Egrets live along the Gulf Coast and around Baja California year-round.  I took this picture on April 6, 2012.

Have a great Monday!
