Pacific Reef Egret Eats Freshwater Shrimp

Kurosagi (クロサギ) in Japan

These birds come in two colors black or, white.

The white one would be called a shirosagi. They are Egretta sacra, in Latin terminology.

 Most of the time, I have observed these birds, they eat fish.

This one, caught a few then, switched its diet to some freshwater prawn.
