The great egret may exhibit, in breeding season, a shocking green lore — the area between the bill and the eyes as shown in this photo. During the breeding season, the lore may turn a vibrant green; the Great Egret will also display long, elegant plumes on its back (can be seen in the picture), which are used in courtship displays. The green color of the lore and the long plumes disappear after the breeding season.
