Dlium Little egret (Egretta garzetta)

Kuntul kecil preys on various types of eels, fish, frogs, crustaceans, aquatic insects and grasshoppers. They hunt food in scattered groups, often mixing with other scaffolding birds. Sometimes it's seen chasing prey on the shallow shore.

These birds fly in a V formation when returning to the nest for the night. They nest in colonies, mixed with other water birds. The nests are arranged from a pile of twigs into a stage in a tree canopy in an environment with waterlogged soil.



Little egrets lure couples in sprinkling by displaying beautiful movements and plaited hairs. The eggs are pale blue for three to four items in February to July or December to March. E. Garzetta has three subspecies: Egretta Garzetta Garzetta, Egretta Garzetta Nigripes and Egretta Garzetta Immaculata.
