Chinese Egret

Latin Name : Egretta eulophotes

Site Name : Sutera Harbour

Photographer : PHILLIPPS, Quentin

Date : 2008-12-22

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. Great Egret in the background.
