Snowy egret fishingAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
A snowy egret (Egretta thula) flys away with a fish in its mouth after diving for the fish in the Gatorland alligator breeding marsh and bird sanctuary near Orlando, Florida. The bird sanctuary is the largest and most easily accessible wild wading bird rookery in east central Florida. Snowy egrets were hunted almost to extinction for its plumage, used by the fashion industry, in the 1800’s. The Aududon Society was formed during this period to push for protection for the birds from the fashion industry.
