Abstract

An Iowa bird which has received state wide attention during the last few years from both ornithologists and non-ornithologists is the beautiful American Egret (Casmerodius albus egretta). The American Egret may be called a "bird with a history" due to the fact of its on and off presence in the state of Iowa. I have felt that there is a need for bringing up to date the American Egret records of now and the past, and so it is with this thought in mind that I have prepared this brief paper. The body of the paper is divided into three parts which deal with the history, migration, and habits during migration. The data in this paper are not taken just from the journals of the author, but much data has been very graciously sent to me by other Iowa ornithologists. The data that has been contributed have been more than helpful for the part on present-day distribution of the bird in Iowa.
