Snowy Egret

Egretta thula

Description:

Spotted it feeding on presumably hermit crabs while heading down to the coast to see the tide pools.

Habitat:

They are most common along the coast, though they do breed patchily in inland wetlands. Snowy Egrets nest colonially, usually on protected islands, and often with other small herons. They concentrate on mudflats, beaches, and wetlands, but also forage in wet agricultural fields and along the edges of rivers and lakes.
