Jan-e, how can you tell? The Wikipedia article says you can tell by the length of the neck, but the one in the photo doesn’t look any different from what we get in Florida.

Always a a student of ornithology here!

Hi Michael,

Location.

http://www.birdlife.org.au/bird-profile/eastern-great-egret

One of Australia’s most elegant birds, the snowy-white Eastern Great Egret is often seen wading in a range of wetlands, from lakes, rivers and swamps to estuaries, saltmarsh and intertidal mudflats.”
