Snowy Egrets are shorter than the Great Egrets. The Snowy Egrets have a black bill, blackish green legs and mustard yellow ankles and feet. The Snowy Egrets have billowy white feathers during their courtship and breeding season.
The Snowy Egrets are very beautiful big wading birds! These birds eat fish, Crayfish, small turtles, frogs, aquatic snails, ducklings, duck eggs, and larger aquatic insects. On occasion, the Snowy Egrets will eat small shoreline animals such as mice, lizards, snakes and land insects. In one of the pictures I am showing today, the Snowy Egrets were with a Great Egret and some Common Cormorants, and in another shot, the Snowy is beside the Great Egret. I took these pictures at dusk last Friday, November 20, 2015 at local Lake County Florida park lake. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the very slightly larger image. Enjoy!
