Photographer's Note

Cattle egrets are small, white birds tht sit comfortably on the back of a cow, an ox, or a buffalo. Cattle egrets sometimes hunt like other wading birds, catching fish and frogs along the water’s edge. But, most often, they follow herds of livestock to eat the grasshoppers that are stirred up by the cattle’s hoofs.

Cattle egrets eat little bugs that bite and tend to bother the cattle.
