Great White Heron

A pale pink tinges the early morning sky. In the stillness of dawn, a large white bird stands like a statue, it's shape reflected in the water beneath.
This heron, the largest white heron, is found only in southern Florida, coastal Yucatan and the Carribean. It is a morph of the much more widespread Great Blue Heron. You can tell this bird from the similarly colored Great Egret because the Great White Heron is larger and has pale legs rather than black legs like the egret.
