I spotted this Cattle Egret in a rocky area of Fuerteventura with low lying scrub. Their feeding habitats include seasonally inundated grasslands, pastures, farmlands and wetlands. They particularly like insects, especially grasshoppers, crickets, flies, maggots, and moths, as well as spiders, frogs, and earthworms. They also often accompany cattle or large mammals and remove ticks and flies from them.
