Reddish Egret - Egretta rufescens rufescens Andrew Spencer 2013-04-17 Green Island, Laguna Madre, Cameron Co., Texas, Willacy (United States) (2 m) call -

natural vocalization; calls from one of a pair of white-phase birds perched on their nest in the canopy of a mesquite tree in dense mesquite forest. I heard this call a lot as single calls from individual birds (both while perched and in flight), but this was the only case where I heard it given consistently.

Reddish Egret - Egretta rufescens Paul Marvin 2013-12-17 Black Point Wildlife Drive, Merritt Island NWR, Florida, Brevard (United States) (0 m) call -

1/2 dozen birds present. I presume it was the feeding bird that was calling. It is the one that is heard splashing through the shallow water in the recording.

Reddish Egret - Egretta rufescens rufescens Andrew Spencer 2013-04-17 Green Island, Laguna Madre, Cameron Co., Texas, Willacy (United States) (2 m) display -

natural vocalizations; calls and bill clattering during 'twig passing display' as one dark phase bird flew into a nest carrying a stick and passing it to another dark phase bird. These individuals were part of a large colony (one of the largest in the US) on a small island filled with dense mesquite growth.
