Reddish Egrets are found in marshy areas along the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coasts. They are not as common as our other herons and egrets. At 27-32” tall, they are medium-sized wading birds. This photo was taken at Ding Darling NWR. Many people are surprised to discover that this species can also be completely white. The white color morph is not as common, and a particular bird is either all white or reddish from birth.
