Ardea Alba Minor Carolinensis: The little white Heron.
This Bird is about the Size of the preceeding. The Bill is red. The
Eyes have yellow Irides. The Legs and Feet are green. The
whole Plumage is white. They feed on Fish, Frogs, &c. and frequent
Rivers, Ponds and Marshes, after the Manner of other Herons.
I believe they breed in Carolina; but I have never seen
any of them in Winter.
