Not ice, but Snowy Egrets! It is Florida. Ha. This pair of Snowy Egrets were hunting for edibles in a partially flooded grass field here in the development. Actually, the field is technically a rainfall retention basin. That area is close to the road so I was able to get decent pictures. Snowy Egrets have yellow feet. The Snowy Egrets also have very luxurious feathers! So glad they are protected from the hunting which many years ago, threatened their existence just for those very feathers. Long ago the egret feathers were frequently made into ornaments for ladies hats.
Snowy Egrets eat small fish, frogs, tadpoles, turtles, and a variety of insects. I noticed a huge caterpillar in the grass near the road so maybe the caterpillars were a draw for the Snowy Egrets. Who knows? This area where the birds were at is usually dry. I took the pictures on Wed. October 1, 2014 here in the development. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photograph. Enjoy!
