The Cattle Egret is valued by farmers for keeping crop pest numbers down. It prefers grasshoppers but also eats frogs, cane toads, lizards and some small mammals. Its sharp bill is used in a lunging and stabbing manner. It often feeds by following large animals such as cattle, grabbing insects and worms that they disturb with their feet. They also will sit on cattle to look out for insects.
