Mid-sized, all white with dark legs and yellow feet. Their yellow feet look like they're wearing yellow snow boots! Snowy egrets also have a characteristic foraging behavior: they swoosh their foot around in the water and then check to see if anything moves.
Snowy egrets are typically found in marshes, although they do like beaches and man-made waterways.
These were observed on Matagorda Island, which is managed by the Aransas NWR.
