Snowy Egret

Egretta thula

Medium-sized heron
Long, slender, black bill with yellow patch at base
White plumage
Long, slender, black legs
Yellow feet

There is no mistaking this egret with its contrasting black legs and bright yellow feet. Even at a distance when size can't always be used as a guideline, those feet really stand out.
