Snowy Egret

The snowy egret can be found in ponds and marshes searching for fish and other aquatic life. It can be distinguished from the Great Egret by its yellow feet. They stalk prey in shallow water, often running or shuffling their feet to flush prey into view.  They also fly with their feet just over the water to scoop up fish or stand still to wait to ambush prey. The snowy egret once was hunted for its showy plumes but now is protected.  This information came from Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia.
