Thursday Birdblogging

This picture of a snowy egret was taken by my sister in Florida. Sadly, we have none around here at present.

A small, active white heron, the Snowy Egret is found in small ponds as well as along the ocean shore. Its black legs and yellow feet quickly identify it.

* Medium-sized, slender all-white heron.
* Back legs and yellow feet.
* Long thin neck, bill, and legs.
* Bill dark.

* Size: 56-66 cm (22-26 in)
* Wingspan: 100 cm (39 in)
* Weight: 370 g (13.06 ounces)

Sex Differences

Sexes look alike.


A loud, nasal squawk in aggression or territorial defense.
