Nonbreeding adult lack plumes and has dull greenish legs and bill. Nonbreeding birds can be confused with Little Egret, but Little Egrets have thinner bill, longer, thinner legs, and usually bright yellow feet. Moves between craggy islands and coastlines when breeding; winters in mangroves, estuaries, and mudflats.
