The Eastern Great Egret (Ardea alba) is often observed foraging in aquatic vegetation around freshwater wetlands. The species can be distinguished from the similar Intermediate Egret (Ardea intermedia) by the long plumes of white feathers that grow on its neck during the breeding season, the extending yellow ‘gape’ beyond its eye, and kinked neck.
