Central Park gets visited by numerous great egrets, especially in the spring. I've photographed them at the Meer, the Pond, Turtle Pond and the Lake.
Great Egret at the Meer
April 25, 2018, was a rainy day at the Meer, but it didn't stop this great egret from posing.
A Great Egret at Turtle Pond
I photographed a great egret on August 2, 2016, at Turtle Pond. It was evening, so the lighting is very dusky. I did a video, and took some nice shots.
This shot is from June 23, 2014.
This is the second video I've made of a great egret, down at the Pond, on April 22, 2015: Oh, Great Egret, What Big Eyes You Have!
