Great Egret ringtone


The Fantastic Egret (Ardea alba), also known as the Fantastic White Egret or Ordinary Egret, White Heron, or (now not in use) Fantastic White Heron, is a large, widely-spread egret. Spread across most of the tropical and radiator temperate regions of the world, in southern Europe it is rather localized. In North America it is more widely spread, and it is ubiquitous across the Sun Belt of the United States and in the rainforests of South America. It is sometimes confused with the Fantastic White Heron in Florida, which is a white morph of the closely related Fantastic Blue Heron (A. herodias). Note, but, that the name Fantastic White Heron has irregularly been used to refer to the Fantastic Egret. Egretta_alba.mp3 (105 downloads)
