The subject of my Masters Thesis – the Great Egret

I figured that as I am writing my thesis I should post some images of what it is I studied: a colonial waterbird called the Great Egret.

What follows is an assortment of images, primarily from my study site at the Houston Audubon Society’s Smith Oaks Sanctuary at High Island, Texas.

    • Thanks Trevor. The Houston Audubon Society’s sanctuary at High Island is a wonderful place with plethora of breeding birds (assorted egrets and herons, Roseate Spoonbills, Neotropic Cormorants, Common Moorhens, etc.) readily observed from the viewing platforms. It also is a world-class migratory stop-over/fallout location each spring (last two weeks of April and the first two weeks of May) for neotropicals.
