This beautiful Snowy Egret (Egretta Thula is the scientific name) was captured in its fancy "feather-do" by Deb as we photographed birds recently at the bird rookery located on the St. Augustine, Florida Alligator Farm on Hwy A1A. Deb was using her Canon 7D Mark II camera along with a Sigma 150-600mm lens when she shot this egret. Now for a little information about this species.
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.
