Getting a mate for a Great Egret is a lot of work. Like a Blue Heron they bring sticks to their potential nesting partner. However first they must get up, in front of all the other egrets, and dance.
The steps are, get down low, spread your plumage, and bounce straight up. Repeat as needed.

As the dance goes on, they bow lower, and stretch higher.
When all else fails, they chase each other around the swamp squawking like fools.
