Cattle Egret

Cattle Egret

The Cattle Egret is part of the heron family. Those beautiful tan tufts are visible during breeding season. They are often found with cattle or other large mammals, from which they find and eat insects. Originally from Europe, these egrets became established in North America in Florida in the 1940’s.
