Great Egret

Ardea alba

Description:

A Great Egret feeding at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. They like to sit near outflowing drainage pipes which allow water under a road which separates two large tidal marshes. As the fish are pushed through during incoming and outgoing tides the birds capture them with ease.

Habitat:

Large inland tidal marsh near the coast of the Delaware Bay.

Notes:

A Snowy Egret was feeding along side of this Great Egret, but kept its distance.
