Wading gracefully on long legs through shallow water or along the water's edge, these birds search for fish, frogs, insects, and other creatures. Some birds use its long bill as a probe and others as a spear. Quick as a wink, it has a meal!
Although egrets and herons do not nest on the refuge, after they fledge their nests, they seek out wetlands like Bombay Hook along the Delaware Bay to feed. The summer months are a great time to look for these graceful birds.
