In this photo, a Snowy Egret is perching on a branch. Three toes grasp the branch from the front and the fourth toe hooks around from the back, almost encircling the branch. This is another good look at the long, sharp claws. It’s easy to miss, but a Snowy Egret has a yellow stripe running up the back of each leg, partly visible in this photo. Both of these foot photos were taken at Ding Darling NWR.
