Great Egret - Ardea alba modesta – นกยางโทนใหญ่ nok yang ton yai
The Great Egret is the largest of the bunch. Its neck is one and a half times the length of its body, much longer than the other egrets, and is significantly more curved than the Intermediate with a distinct kink visible when its neck is not fully extended. An easily noticeable line extends from the bill to well past the eye.
