The great egret, also known as the common egret, large egret, or or great white heron is a large, widely distributed egret across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, it builds tree nests in colonies close to water.

A tall, stately white wader of quiet waters that's common in Florida was nearly wiped out in the United States in the late 1800s, when its plumes were sought for use in fashion, the Great Egret made a comeback after early conservationists put a stop to the slaughter and protected its colonies; as a result, this bird became the symbol of the National Audubon Society.
