Some Egrets are seen roaming the park in the trees, like the African Sacred Ibis. The egret feeds in shallow
water or drier habitats, feeding mainly on fish, frogs, small mammals, and occasionally small reptiles and insects. It has a slow flight, with its neck retracted. This is characteristic of herons and bitterns, and distinguishes them from storks, cranes, ibises, and spoonbills, which extend their necks in flight.
