    The little egret has a black bill and the cattle egret has a yellow bill. Cattle Egrets stalk insects and other small animals on the ground in grassy fields. They are less commonly seen in water than other herons. They nest in dense colonies of stick nests in trees or emergent wetlands, often mixed with other species of herons. The little egret feeds on prey like fish and frogs, in shallow water. Cattle egrets are generally insectivorous but will also consume rodents, lizards, frogs, crustaceans, tadpoles and fish.
