The Snowy Egret above will sport a head dress and brilliant red lores as you can see on the picture on the right.
Indulge me for a moment: At the end of the 19th century wearing bird plumage was all the rage for fashionable women. That demand led to the wholesale slaughter of both the Great Egret above and the Snowy Egret for their breeding plumage. Both species were nearly wiped out of the U.S., until a group of concerned citizens in New York rallied to their cause. That early conservation effort not only saved the species from extirpation, it led to the formation of the Audubon Society in the early 20th century.
A diabolical looking Great Blue Heron. Even in December you can find them at the edges of our lagoons, bills high in the air when warding off another male heron.
