Reddish Egret, South Carolina

This is probably the only Reddish Egret we will see in the Lowcountry this year. Unless they drastically changed their range this bird was blown off course.

Reddish Egrets have a tiny, warmer tropical habitat, always on the coast. They  don’t migrate at all.

Because they stick right on the coast when food shortages hit, or a toxic bloom happens on the coast, their populations drastically drop.
