Snowy Egret at South Padre Island

Snowy Egrets are a foot smaller than the Egrets that are commonly seen in Minnesota. The most prominent features are the snowy white plumage and yellow feet. The last photo shows his stylish feet. This male is starting to show his mating plums. Are these birds called waiters or waders? They wade in the water and wait for fish.
