Snowy Egrets are really awesome looking birds and have a unique personality! They only stand about 2 feet tall, although in this picture he looks a lot taller! They will go fishing with other Egrets or Herons, in a small pond, marsh, or river. They stalk their prey by running or shuffling their feet, "flushing" the prey out into view. Expert fishers!
