Chinese Egret

Latin Name : Egretta eulophotes

Site Name : Sutera Harbour

Photographer : PHILLIPPS, Quentin

Date : 2008-12-00

Notes : A large proportion of the world population of Chinese Egrets spends the winter months (Oct-March) around the coast of Borneo. This photo was taken at a drainage outlet between Sutera Harbour and Kg Tg Aru (Kota Kinabalu) where groups of egrets gather to feed on scraps of taufu (bean curd) floating out to sea.
