Abstract

The Old World species Egretta garzetta has been observed about 45 times in the Americas at widely separated locations. Numbers of sightings in the Americas are increasing annually. Individuals apparently migrate with Snowy Egrets, Egretta thula, between the Caribbean and northeastern North America. Presented here are analyses of the taxonomy and distribution of the species, identification, origin in the Americas, and seasonal distribution, with an annotated list of all known sightings in the Americas.
