A large white heron, the Great Egret is found across much of the world, from southern Canada southward to Argentina, and in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. It's the largest of the egrets. This was filmed on Inks Lake Texas.

Plume hunters in the late 1800s and early 1900s reduced North American populations by more than 95 percent. The populations recovered after the birds were protected by law.


These photos and videos were filmed at Inks Lake, Llano County, Texas. December 12 2006.

Pelicans on Inks Lake.
A pelican is any of several very large water birds with a distinctive pouch under the beak belonging to
the bird family Pelecanidae.
Pelicans have all four toes webbed (they are totipalmate).
Modern pelicans are found on all continents except Antarctica. They are birds of inland and coastal waters.

Pelicans can grow to a wingspan of three meters
and weigh 13 kilograms, males being a little larger
than females and having a longer bill.
