Often asked this question, I thought it would be helpful to post the answer again, especially as at this time of year when we see numerous numbers foraging in our marshes and along the shore. Both species of birds breed on Cape Ann and the coast of Massachusetts.
The first clue is size. Snowy Egrets are small, about the size of the Mallard Duck. Remember the letter S for small and snowy. Great Egrets are much larger, nearly identical in size to that of the Great Blue Heron.
Great Egrets have black feet and yellow bills. Snowy Egrets have reverse coloring, yellow feet and black bills.
FYI….traffic is blocked from the rotary all the way over the bridge, past lobster land, past Sudbay, to the route 133 exit. Not moving. It looked like there was a tow truck at the very beginning of it all picking up a car. Slooooow Going!

Through the eyes of love a story emerges relating to nature. The journey begins with an invitation to come into the center to experience and contemplate the vast beauty of nature in its sacred expression.
Experience through the center of being … the Heart, resurrecting devotions to nature that are timeless, timely, and eternal. Stories permeate past, present, and future into one sacred and eternal moment through each untouched photograph. Honor the light, color, and experience of our being, sacred as music through the soul. Witness the beauty and sacredness of nature, the exhibition of photographs and stained glass reflects the sanctuary of Mother Nature brought alive by the artist.
“Our experience is reflected in nature, and nature is reflected within us. We are the thread that binds heaven and earth. ” Hilary Harrison
