  1. I would say that this is an Egrit, no?

    Either way, nice click! :)

    1. It definitely is. It's not the little one (it has yellow feet), which leaves either the intermediate or great egret. According to my bird card that is. Posted 6 years ago

The intermediate egret, median egret, smaller egret, or yellow-billed egret is a medium-sized heron. Some taxonomists put the species in the genus ''Egretta'' or ''Ardea''. It is a resident breeder from east Africa across the Indian subcontinent to Southeast Asia and Australia.
