Great Egret

Ardea alba

Description:

Great Egrets wade in shallow water (both fresh and salt) to hunt fish, frogs, and other small aquatic animals. They typically stand still and watch for unsuspecting prey to pass by. Then, with startling speed, the egrets strike with a jab of their long neck and bill.

Habitat:

Hunting in the tall vegetation at a pond at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge.
