Cattle Egret Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: I see Cattle Egret occasionally here in South Dakota, most often around some big cattle ranches (yes, they do hang around cattle!) around the Lake Thompson area. However, my favorite photo is one taken while on vacation on Assateague Island in Virginia, with a breeding plumage bird standing in typical habitat in warm light just after dawn.  Taken on June 23rd, 2005.
