Egrets
(Family: ARDEIDAE)
Most members of this family wade in swamps and marshes looking for fish, frogs and other prey which they spear with their long, pointed bills.
The Great Egret, recognized by its white body, yellow bill and black legs, builds a bulky nest in a tree either in a swamp or on a cay. Two to five greenish-blue eggs are laid.
