    The snowy egret is about the same size as a large crow.

    The egret is specific; the crow is not (they can be small, medium or big/large).

    Re: Help me

    Pardon me, but the first sentence?
    I would say simply "is an elevator" not "having an elevator."

    Damn, that egret is one big bird. Can it feed a family of 4?
