Snowy Egret

In the latter part of the 19th century and into the early twentieth, snowy egret plumes were very popular on hats. The result was that these birds were hunted until they were nearly extinct! Now protected, populations have recovered. The snowy egret feeds by moving briskly in the water, shuffling its feet and rushing about trying to stir out of hiding its prey of fish, insects and other aquatic organisms.  The snowy egret usually holds its neck in an "S" curve in flight.
