At The Lake - Great White Egret

My husband and I have been watching for the Great White Egrets on Kentucky Lake this fall. My pics aren't great, the water was so shallow, and it made it extremely hard to get close enough for that perfect shot. 

The Great White Egret has long black legs and an orange beak. 

They fly with their S-curved neck retracted. Unlike storks, ibis, spoonbills, and cranes who fly with their necks outstretched. 

They grow to 38 inches tall are found on every continent except Antarticia. 

This bird is protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. 

They hunt in shallow water and swallow small fish whole. They also like frogs, crayfish, dragonflies, and grasshoppers.
