The Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) is a small white heron with black legs and bill and yellow feet. In the breeding season the plumage includes two ribbon-like head plumes, and abundant plumes on the back and breast. Little Egrets are the liveliest hunters among herons and egrets, with a wide variety of techniques. They may patiently stalk prey in shallow waters, stand on one leg and stir the mud with the other to scare up prey, or by shuffling its feet to disturb small fish and other animals. The diet normally consists of fish, amphibians, reptiles, crustaceans and insects.
