Colorful Young Cattle Egret

The Cattke Egret gets beautiful coloring during maating season. Most of the year he is pure white and rather plain, but during matin season he gets a brilliant red color on his bill, lores (area between his bill and eyes), bright red eyes and a light brown mating topnot and back.
