A Different Egret


Teresa captured this photo of a Cattle Egret this week. This bird was hanging out on a golf course. We have seen a lot of them here on the island of Maui.

During peak breeding season, the Cattle Egret’s bill, legs, and irises turn bright red. At other times of the year, their bill and eyes are a dull yellow-orange, and their legs are black (like the bird in this photo). And now you know!
