Default White egret on a pine tree

There is a pine tree in my neighborhood which is the home of 30 pairs of egrets. I am told they come back to the same tree every to nest and raise the young.

Thanks. This is a cropped picture from a small image. My Tamron 70-300mm is stretched to the limit at 300mm f/8.

The pine tree is not that big. I am amazed to see that many Egrets nested there. Not to mention that 2 species of Egrets co-existed to nest on the same tree.
