Beautiful great white heron feeding on the Trinity river, in the wintertime. These are such beautiful majestic creatures. Usually we would see, the great blue heron. Not so often have we seen the great white heron.
Other names for the great white heron are, great egret, common egret, and large egret. The heron or egret is definitely large. They come here to the Trinity river, in the winter to feed. Along with, the geese, ducks, and great blue herons.
You will see these large birds often off the Interstate 5 that runs through California, they are in the rice fields, and other large bodies of water, that are marsh like. There are tons of birds in this area of CA, lots of water, food, and lots of birds. But often you will see many great white egrets standing in the marshes feeding as you drive by.
