Pacific Reef Egret

Latin Name : Egretta sacra

Site Name : Sipadan

Photographer : PHILLIPPS, Quentin

Date : 2005-01-01

Notes : Two white and one dark morph together on Sipadan. Collecting records and observations show that on coral islands both dark and white morphs appear to be equally common whereas along the Sabah coastline dark morphs predominate by at least 5:1.
