~Birding in Texas, Snowy Egrets

High Island, Texas, Smith Oaks Rookery, April, 2017

Could the Snowy Egret be my favorite Egret. Possibly! They are beautiful with long white plumes on their head and neck. Their facial color, during breeding, is mostly yellow. And, they have bright yellow feet! They are fun to watch being both silly and elegant. Their babies began to fly after 20 days and their life span is at least 16 years.

I didn’t notice a lot of them, perhaps I was focused on the Great Egret babies.

Happy Birding!
