2017—Foot Dragging

When we were at Corkscrew Swamp, I  noticed the snowy egrets were dragging their feet through the water as they flew across the lake.  I finally inquired about it.  Snowy egrets use various methods of stirring the water when they search for food, including dragging their feet across the water to agitate the surface to lure the fish upward.  Fascinating.
