WE are honored the following art groups have featured our "Fluffy Snowy Egret"
On April 01, 2018 Deb & I returned, once again, to the bird rookery located on the Alligator Farm, which is located in Saint Augustine, Florida. It was Deb's desire to do so since it was on her birthday.
Of course, as always when we visit this amazing place we captured many, many birds of many breeds with our cameras. This image was captured by me, (BIll) using my Nikon camera + a Nikon 200-500mm lens + a 1.4 extender.
As the title indicates this snowy egret was "fluffed" up when I captured this image, which was a special treat since it revealed its feathers in all their glory and details. Now for a few facts about this beautiful bird thanks to Wikipedia.
The snowy egret (Egretta thula) is a small white heron. The genus name comes from the Provençal French for the little egret aigrette, a diminutive of aigron, "heron". The species name thula is the Araucano for the Black-necked Swan, applied to this species in error by Chilean naturalist Juan Ignacio Molina in 1782.
The snowy egret is the American counterpart to the very similar Old World little egret, which has established a foothold in the Bahamas. At one time, the beautiful plumes of the snowy egret were in great demand by market hunters as decorations for women's hats. This reduced the population of the species to dangerously low levels. Now protected in the United States by law, under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, this bird's population has rebounded.
Adults are typically 61 cm (24 in) long and weigh 375 g (0.827 lb) They have a slim black bill and long black legs with yellow feet. The area of the upper bill, in front of the eyes, is yellow but turns red during the breeding season, when the adults also gain recurved plumes on the back, making for a "shaggy" effect. The juvenile looks similar to the adult, but the base of the bill is paler, and a green or yellow line runs down the back of the legs.
