The rarest egret in North America, the Reddish Egret is primarily a coastal bird inhabiting saltwater estuaries. They get their food from tidal washes that shift bait with the current. The most animated of egrets, they are entertaining to watch as they jump, leap, wave wings, and run after their prey. A small percentage have all white feathers, referred to a white morph, but retain the same blue legs and pink lores. This is a four plate etching using 10 inks that are hand-printed; afterward each etching is hand-colored with transparent watercolor.
