Great Egrets are often seen flying over Kaweah Oaks Preserve on their way to somewhere else! They might be seen alone the creek banks when water is running in the canals.
Great egrets are most often seen in their classic hunting
stance: standing in shallow water quietly watching for fish, frogs, or
crayfish to swim by. If you are patient enough to watch them feed, you
will be amazed at their lightning-fast response and accuracy when they
plunge their head underwater to nab a quivering fish. Though well suited
for hunting in water, egrets can often be seen in open fields stalking
mice and voles driven from their burrows by winter rains. These birds are
voracious hunters and will eat about any animal big enough to see and small
enough to swallow.
