I was so excited when I saw the foot. I thought I entered heaven for a moment. Its exciting identifying a bird I rarely see.

  • Wade in shallow water to spear fish and other aquatic animals
  • Adult Snowy Egrets have greenish-yellow feet for most of the year, but at the height of the breeding season their feet take on a much richer, orange-yellow hue.
