Snowy Egrets begin to arrive in Falmouth in early April. They can be seen foraging for food in the shallow waters of marshes and ponds close to their breeding grounds. While foraging they walk slowly at first, then speed up, and often will use their feet to stir things up to help find aquatic prey. They breed in colonies with other egrets and herons. Their magnificent wispy white plumes are on display during breeding season. The Snowy Egret is all white with bright yellow eyes, black legs and yellow feet. This Egret was seen along the southwest shoreline of Salt Pond.
