Great egrets are mostly found wading slowly in shallow waters and marshes though much of Florida, sometimes foraging in nearby upland habitats. The diet consists mainly of fishes, amphibians, snakes, snails crustaceans, insects and small mammals.
A year-round resident of Florida and many other coastal areas of the Americas, extending inland through the southeastern coastal plain and up the Mississippi River during breeding season. Can be seen in other parts of the United States and into southern Canada in the warmer months. The range of Ardea Alba includes all of the continents except Antartica.
With the exception of the great blue heron white morph, the great egret is the largest of the white herons. The great egret has a very long neck, a long, straight, pointed yellow bill, and long black legs and feet. In contrast, the white form of the great blue heron has yellowish to buffy-gray legs. During the breeding season long plumes extend beyond the end of the tail.
