Great White Egret - Ardea Alba

The great egret is generally a very successful species with a large and expanding range, occurring worldwide in temperate and tropical habitats. It is ubiquitous across the Sun Belt of the United States and in the Neotropics. In North America, large numbers of great egrets were killed around the end of the 19th century so that their plumes could be used to decorate hats. Numbers have since recovered as a result of conservation measures. Its range has expanded as far north as southern Canada. However, in some parts of the southern United States, its numbers have declined due to habitat loss, particularly wetland degradation through drainage, grazing, clearing, burning, increased salinity, groundwater extraction and invasion by exotic plants. Nevertheless, the species adapts well to human habitation and can be readily seen near wetlands and bodies of water in urban and suburban areas.

The great egret is partially migratory, with northern hemisphere birds moving south from areas with colder winters. It is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies.

In 1953, the great egret in flight was chosen as the symbol of the National Audubon Society, which was formed in part to prevent the killing of birds for their feathers.

On 22 May 2012, a pair of great egrets was announced to be nesting in the UK for the first time at the Shapwick Heath nature reserve in Somerset. The species is a rare visitor to the UK and Ben Aviss of the BBC stated that the news could mean the UK's first great egret colony is established. The following week, Kevin Anderson of Natural England confirmed a great egret chick had hatched, making it a new breeding bird record for the UK. In 2017, seven nests in Somerset fledged 17 young, and a second breeding site was announced at Holkham National Nature Reserve in Norfolk where a pair fledged three young.

In 2018, a pair of great egrets nested in Finland for the first time, raising four young in a grey heron colony in Porvoo.

Eu só quero tar tranquilo, rodeado de algumas coisas
Que preciso para ter a minha paz
Pra quê andar atrás daquilo que não controlo
Quando na verdade o essêncial satisfaz

A maioria não está necessáriamente certa
Questiona o que te dizem, mantém-te alerta
Não tenhas medo arriscar a vida é uma oferta
Mas essa porta, não fica para sempre aberta

Não percas muito tempo a pensar no que vão dizer
Por aí, na dúvida sorri
Respeita a vontade que pulsa dentro de ti
Para viveres em pleno a passagem por aqui

Ouve o meu conselho se tiveres pra aí virado
Não precisas de luz pra te sentires realizado
Se disserem o contrário não fiques preocupado
Nã, nã, assobia para o lado

Assobia para o lado
Assobia para o lado
Assobia para o lado
