Snowy Egrets are easily identified if you can see their feet: bright yellow and rather clownish looking.

They also have trouble with their hair-dos, another factor that adds to their comical persona. They dance around when they feed to stir up fish settled to the bottom of creeks or ponds, often tossing their heads causing those extra long feathers to bounce.
