Great Egret

Abundant year-round on the island, The Great Egret is a large heron with all-white plumage, a yellowish-orange bill, black legs, and an S-curved neck.  It hunts for fish, frogs, and other aquatic animals in quite water waiting for prey to pass.

It is sometimes confused with its smaller cousin, the Snowy Egret, who’s coloring is reversed – yellow feet and a black bill.
