American egret

The Great Egret , also known as the Great White Egret or Common Egret or Great White Heron, and called kōtuku in New Zealand, is a large egret. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, in southern Europe and Asia it is rather localized. In North America it is more widely distributed, and it is ubiquitous across the sun-belt of the United States and in the rain forests of South America. It is sometimes confused with the Great White Heron in Florida, which is a white morph of the closely related Great Blue Heron . Note however that the name Great White Heron has occasionally been used to refer to the Great Egret.

The American egret is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
