Quote for the Week

Great Egret, American Egret

Great Egret

“On foot its movements are as graceful as those of the Louisiana Heron, its steps measured, its long neck gracefully retracted and curved, and its silk train reminded one of the flowing robes of the noble ladies of Europe. The train of this Egret … makes its appearance a few weeks previous to the love season, continues to grow and increase in beauty, until incubation has commenced.”

    John James Audubon, naturalist, ornithologist, painter
