About This Image

A, white, snowy egret standing in very clear water...so clear, you can see his yellow feet beneath the ripples.

The Snowy Egret, is a small white heron. It is the American counterpart to the very similar Old World Little Egret, which has established a foothold in the Bahamas.

Adults are typically 61 cm long and weigh 375 g. They have a slim black bill and long black legs with yellow feet. The area of the upper bill, in front of the eyes, is yellow but turns red during the breeding season, when the adults also gain recurved plumes on the back, making for a "shaggy" effect.
Thanks for viewing :)
