I could well be Hunjoro, I have seen the cattle egrets in Alabama. This morning there was a dove at the pond that looked alot like our mourning doves here.

I find it interesting that some bird species are so widespread - I expect African wildlife to be exotically different from what I see in my neighborhood. I know the cattle egrets we have are an import from Africa. I wonder about these guys.
