Dimorphic Egret

Dark morph in Madagascar

The dimorphic egret (Egretta dimorpha) is a species of heron in the Ardeidae family. It is found in Comoros, Kenya, Madagascar, Mayotte, Seychelles, and Tanzania.

In 2009, the IUCN lumped Egretta dimorpha with the little egret Egretta garzetta.

The dimorphic egret can sometime be found on rooftops, finding insects in the gutters of houses.[1]
