Description: The cattle egret, Bubulcus ibis, is often found in marshy areas in Ohio during its breeding season of April to July. A native of Africa, the cattle egret extended its range into South America and eventually the southern United States in the nineteenth century. It feeds off of small insects picked off the backs of cattle or off the ground. The photographs measure 3" x 3" (7.62 x 7.62 cm). View on Ohio Memory.
