    These were taken down at Virginia Beach at one of the many inlets and ponds that make up the salt water marsh along Back Bay. I've watched Great Egrets at a few locations over the last few months and they appear to be a more social bird when compared to the other waders like the GBH or other Herons. The Great Egrets like to fly around together, squawk at each other and generally interact. The Herons I've seen have almost always been along.
