YELLOW-BILLED EGRET, ZAMBEZI RIVER, LIVINGSTONE, ZAMBIA

   We can ID this egret as a Yellow-billed Egret or Intermediate Egret, rather than a Great Egret as follows:
  • The gape line does not extend beyond the eye.
  • The bill is not aligned with the flat top of the head, as in a Great Egret.
   The Yellow-billed Egret or Intermediate Egret is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 352.
