The reddish egret is a small colorful heron that likes warm places and staying active. It is found in the Caribbean, Texas, California, and Central America. In Texas it is considered “threatened”. Poor reddish egret! It prefers a cuisine of fish, frogs, crustaceans, and insects.
Has anyone ever seen one of these in person? I heard of it in Luke Dempsey’s book, “A Supremely Bad Idea: Three Mad Birder’s and Their Quest To See It All.”
