Snowy Egret

(Egretta thula)

Found from Oregon to New England along coastal areas, the snowy egret nests in colonies often with other heron. The snowy egret feeds in shallow water, sprinting back and forth chasing small schools of minnows and shrimp. This behavior often alerts other birds to join in the feeding frenzie. Once over hunted for its beautiful breeding plumage in the early part of the century, the snowy egret numbers have recovered and thrive today due to protective wildlife laws.
