Great Egrets are seen here in The Villages, FL, all year around. The Great Egrets are the larger of the egrets. One picture here is showing the Snowy Egret next to the towering Great Egret.
The Great Egrets frequent the marshes, lakes, golf ponds, and even flowerbeds and landscaping around buildings here in The Villages, FL as well as other places in the USA.
Great Egrets enjoy eating aquatic animals such as fish, frogs, smaller turtles, some aquatic snails, baby alligators, ducklings, goslings, and shore critters such as mice, lizards and smaller snakes.
