In Coral Bay, we stumbled upon three Cattle Egrets in breeding plumage. Originally found only in Africa, they were ubiquitous in the company of rhinos, ostriches, and elephants. By 1941, Cattle Egrets had made their way to North America, where they’ve since flourished. Photo courtesy of Randy Freeman.
