Deb and I decided to travel to Jekyll Island, Georgia on Saturday morning February 11, 2017 to view and photograph birds of all sizes we felt would be photo worthy. And we are happy to write we were greeted with beautiful weather and plenty of birds, therefore, we had a very successful day. Of course, one gorgeous bird we captured was this Snowy Egret as it was taking flight and are now posting it. Following is some history on the Snowy Egret you may find interesting.
The snowy egret (Egretta Thula) is a small white heron. The genus name comes from the Provenal 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.
