About the Image
The Cattle Egret is a species of heron found in the tropics and warm temperate zones. This one was photographed in Kauai, Hawaii. It is a stocky bird with white feathers adorned with buff plumes in the breeding season and nests in colonies, usually near bodies of water and often with other wading birds. It feeds in relatively dry grassy habitats, often accompanying cattle or other large mammals, since it catches insect and small vertebrate prey disturbed by these animals.
