Spreading its wings out widely over the stream, an absolutely white little egret landed in Murin-an’s garden. Moving to the stream, it shook the bottom of the water, skillfully sticking in its beak to eat the creatures that had been hiding underneath the dead leaves.
The are four species of egret that visit Murin-an’s garden. Those with yellow toes are little egrets, the big ones with black toes are great egrets. The ones that are bluish-gray all over are herons and those with deep bluish-gray backs and red eyes are night herons.
