Small white egret with showy plumes which are more obvious during breeding season. Black thin bill, long black legs with yellow feet.
Spotted in a Snowy Egret breeding colony along with breeding Black-crowned Night Heron.
Breeding close quarters with another bird species is hard. Most times they get along. But the day I got these photos a Snowy Egret chick was killed by another bird.
