A snowy egret Egrette thula flying and a great egret Ardea alba at the back in the water. The Great Egret's lore is green and egrets can be seen, both are signs of breeding time.

We had already mentioned that there is a big group of egrets which comes to roost. During the day most of them leave. though some remain. Almost all snowy egrets with the exception of one great egret on the left

The greenish legs and the bill led us to erronously conclude that this was a juvenile Little Blue Heron. Lui explains to us that the little blue heron has the face of another colour and that in this plumage outer primaries should be expected to have some black colouring.

Nicolás tells us that "This morning I was walking along the outer side of the Coypu Pond when I saw an unusual number of egrets at Parrilla Don José. It was a group of 70 individuals foraging and moving actively in the pond. They barely flew about. I had never seen a group this big! Since I had previously seen young fish near this area I thought this could be their food ...
An awesome scene!"
