About this Group

Egrets And HeronsMany egrets are members of the genera Egretta or Ardea which also contain other species named as herons rather than egrets. The distinction between a heron and an egret is rather vague, and depends more on appearance than biology. The word egret comes from the French word 'aigrette' that means both 'silver heron' and 'brush', referring to the long filamentous feathers that seem to cascade down an egre's back during the breeding season.
