Capture this snowy egret fishing for shrimp at Ding Darling National wildlife refuge in Sanibel Island, Fl. 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 USA by law, under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, this bird’s population has rebounded.
