Yes this is the snowy egret. Not as large as the great egret, but a beautiful bird. It hangs out in the samae spot as the Great. What makes it so attractive are the feet, yellow in color.Very nice Herb! Is this the one you were after? The elusive one? Great shots. Incredible birds, aren't they? This one looks similar to one that we saw flying behind our house when we lived in Palm Coast, Florida. That was a treat.
Nice shot Herb! Beautiful birds. I merged this post with your Snowy Egret post since we're talking about egrets. I think the merge will be better for those who are interested in these birds.I spent about 3 hours walking 4 parks yesterday carrying my tripod, and monster lens. It seemed as though all birds had left Staten Island . Finally, at the last park visited, my favorite, and only about 3 minutes by car.
