Bird ID Needed
Feb 13, 2013

These were taken this past week in Palm Beach, Florida.  Can anyone tell me what kind of birds these are?  I don't know if they are juveniles or adult; heron or egret, or something else.

Thanks in advance.

This forum hosts a thread called the Sunday Bird where you would get an answer for your question and it is open to all cameras so will not upset anyone for being posted in a dslr forum.  There are many knowledgeable birders who frequent this forum so I suspect you should get an answer.

There is a Sunday Bird thread here I follow and post to now and then so I figured this forum would have the more knowledgeable members.

From your photos I would say they are Cattle egret.

They are not a native bird which originally came here from Africa. The birds nest in colonies.

Thanks Andrew.  I do post to the Sunday thread now and then.  I saw a lot of interesting birds on this trip and plan to post some more pics this coming week.  I was just hoping to find out before then.

Shame on you for the rude response.

The person was requesting a bird ID.  Lot's of birders on this page, who are birders. Can't think of a better place for answer to the question.

Thanks R2elk,

I post here because I am familiar with the members, appreciate their opinions, and want to support the forum.

OTOH, I checked out the birdforum site and it is pretty good.  I posted a thread there and we'll see what they say.  I also looked around at some other threads there and was able to identify another bird I was wondering about. Site bookmarked!  Thanks.

Sheesh. This question is very welcome here.

Don't feel any need to head for the bird forum (which is excellent). Anyone saying otherwise is, IMO, a rookie.
