Next wader up: Snowy egret

Just like yesterday’s great egret photo, this photo of a snowy egret has stood the test of time. The copyright says 2015, but the photo was taken many years before that, in the Norwalk Harbor in Norwalk, Connecticut.

Snowy egrets are less likely to be seen away from the coast than great egrets, which can often be found far inland. Snowy egrets are much smaller than great egrets, as the name suggests. The photo below is pretty low in quality, but it gives you an idea of the size difference between the two. The snowy egret is on the left.

  1. When I lived in Norwalk, I took many pictures of both types of Egrets. I also chronicled and photographed the Ospreys at Calf Pasture Beach for the Audubon Society.
