The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret, or  great white egret  is a large, widely distributed egret with four subspecies found in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and southern Europe. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, it builds tree nests in colonies close to water.
