Pink Dinosaur #222

Pink Egretta by David Tana
 
28 – Egretta rufescens – the reddish egret is a native of the Gulf Coast, the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico that makes a life for itself hunting small vertebrates and invertebrates in shallow water.  They are more energetic than other herons and egrets, and often employ canopy hunting as a method of prey capture.  Image references for illustration from Wikimedia Commons.

Interesting to see one that's *normally* pinkish...

To be fair, I might have made this one a little more pink than it should be. But the adult dark morph is certainly normally pinkish.
