Is this Great and chick or little and large?

  • Hi Colin, before I start, I am not an expert on ID's but I would say your photo shows a Great Egret (left) and Little Egret (right) as juvenile Great Egrets would be in non breeding plumage of an adult and I think although the bill would be somewhat darker, there would be a hint of yellow on it towards the base but at least this will keep the post at the top of the page for a while for other opinions.

  • Thank you for your reply I'll keep watching.
    Regards Colin.
  • I'm in agreement with Hazel, great and little.
