Great egrets are monogamous, meaning that they mate for life. When searching for a mate, males will try to impress females with long plumes held up over their back.

Great egrets were once hunted to the brink of extinction for their feathers in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In fact, they were at one point worth twice their weight in gold. In North America, their population was reduced by over 95 percent. Thankfully, they were soon protected by law and have seen a dramatic increase in their numbers.
