The great egret is a large heron.
- An adult has white plumage with contrasting black legs and feet.
- A bright yellow bill, tipped with black.
- A greenish-yellow area between the bill and the eye.
- A long neck.
During the breeding season the great egret displays plumes on its back, which extend up to ten centimeters past the tail. Those plumes are used in courtship displays. Nothing better than shaking a tail feather to attract a mate!
