Bird Photos / Little EgretLast Update: 6/10/2008
A Little Egret made a stop at Bombay Hook NWR in early June 2008. I saw it there on June 8th. This species of bird is more common in Europe. It looks similar to the Snowy Egret, but note the grayish color of the Little Egret's lores (base of the bill on the side of the face) vs a yellow color on the Snowy Egret. And the Little Egret has a grayer bill. It also has the two very noticeable plumes coming from its head.
