Artist's Description

Great White Egret eggs hatch in 23 to 28 days. Each nest has from two to six eggs. Males and females share building and staying-on-nest duties. Nesting can become very stressful in heat and cold, good weather and bad. Each egret must be on the nest for many, many hours without food, water, or freedom to fish. When the nesting pair reunite to exchange places, they greet each other with mutual squawking and raised feathers, including “nuptial plumage” feathers which grow only during the mating period. Mating pairs do truly appear to be (as we call it) in love.
