I don't know if this is a Snowy or White Egret...
After looking at photo 2 and enlarging it the best I could on a poor monitor, it does appear to me that I see yellow feet on this egret. That would mean it is indeed a Snowy Egret. I have a link to a spotting of a yellow egret I have if one wishes to compare. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/123...
Now I don't know, Belinda ... only know I saw his yellow feet..
Looks like a white. Snowy Egrets have black bills with yellow near the eye, white egrets have all yellow bills. :)
Thank you so much ... will do that now :)
Seeing as you state the feet were yellow it is for certain a Snowy Egret. The Snowy Egret scientific name is Egretta thula. It would be great if you could add this to your spotting.
Yes, they're yellow!
have you see the feet of the egrett ,where they yellow?
