Egrets are extraordinarily elegant birds. These images – of both Great Egrets and Snowy Egrets – were all taken of Egrets in one tree in the town of Alameda, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. While Egrets are migratory, they can be found in this one tree for more than half the year. Great Egrets are the larger of the two and grow to more than 3 feet in height, seven feet in wingspan, and more than two pounds in weight. Snowy Egrets are smaller and grow to two feet in height and just under a pound in weight.
