Great white Egret Preening – Oops… egrets are really herons which have white or buff plumage and develop the plumes during breeding season. Males sport these plumes, (called aigrette feathers) during mating season. The sixth neck vertebra is especially long, causing the familiar “S” shape to their necks. Great egrets are about 33-48 inches tall and weigh 800-1,360 pounds. They eat fish, small snakes, amphibians.
