SNOWY EGRET

 

Snowy egrets inhabit aquatic environments where they feed on fish and small invertebrates.  They exist in both North and South America

and, in winter, populations in both continents can migrate to warmer regions.  Toward the end of the 1800s, they were hunted to such a degree that the species neared extinction.
