The Great Egrets

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.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!  This is dedicated to the memory of those who died in service to the country.  Happy Memorial Day to all.

  1. Hi all, I saw the funniest thing a few moments ago while driving home from the archery range at the local park – saw a Cattle Egret perched upon the eves of a local home! I guess there are now some Cattle Egrets around here which is new and different. Wildlifewatcher
