The snowy egret (egretta thula) is an inhabitant of shallow freshwater and saltwater wetlands from the upper United States down through Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South Amerca to Chile and Argentina. Not found in the mountains. It is more common along the coasts on mud flats and beaches, preferring brackish or marine habitats over freshwater, but is found inland in shallow marshes, ponds, and wet agricultural fields.

 

It is an all white bird with black legs and bill, and a patch of yellow skin at the base of the bill. Its most distinguishing feature is its yellow feet which get brighter during the breeding season. The immature bird has duller, greenish legs.

Title: The Vigil

 

The snowy egret is a very active hunter, walking, running, or hopping around, sometimes with wings outspread, trying to herd prey into groups to make them easier to catch. They will sometimes fish by standing still and letting the prey come to them. They feed on fish and small aquatic animals, including frogs, worms, crustaceans and insects.

 

During the late 1800's and early 1900's thaey were almost hunted to extinction for their breeding feathers for womens fashion. In 1886 an ounce of their breeding feathers cost $32.00, twice the cost of an ounce of gold.
