Spotted this morning in the Caroni Rice Fields. Very distinct from all other Egrets in the field with grey neck, plumes and some grey coming through in the underparts and rump areas.
If it wasn't for the grey, I would have thought it a Snowy Egret.
Any help appreciated.
Yes, not many records at all. Other than the returning female, haven't heard of other sightings for the past 2 or 3 years. Believe a different female and a male were spotted in previous years ( one in Tobago).
A single female has been returning frequently to the same tree in Trinidad for about 3 years. Today again, we saw the female (plate with 3 pics), but then noticed after examining pictures from a couple km away, a possible male (plate with 4 pics).
Appreciate if someone can confirm the ID...
