      1. Sorry, I messed that up. The little egret is native to Europe, Asia and Australia. The snowy egret is a North American species. Both are genus egretta.

        Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have snow egrets and great blue herons in the winter, but I doubt I’ve ever seen a little egret.
