Egrets are very much a known prescence here in Bradenton. They are as common as the Ibis and can even be seen in yards sometimes and parking lots of restaurants. Most of them stay close to the water. Above photo was taken at the Yacht Club that is in the front door of our City Hall.
they love to strut their stuff at the beaches.

6 AM on Anna Maria Island, not enough light, but you can see there were flocks of them, we estimated over 100 Egrets, hundreds of gulls and pelicans, all in one place fishing. I regretted it was to dark to document.
Egret with attitude
Egrets are waders and fishers
God loved the birds and invented trees, man loved the bird and invented cages. Jacques Deval
these Beautiful Birds almost made the extinct list. In the 19th and early part of the 20th century, some of the world's egret species were endangered by relentless hunting, since hat makers in Europe and the United States demanded massive numbers of egret plumes and breeding birds were killed in locations all around the world.
