Artist's Description

Snowy egrets are medium-sized, white herons found both in fresh and salt water environments. Once hunted to near extinction (late 1800’s) for their feathers, protection has allowed their population to increase. Their range is now generally throughout the coastal United States and can even be found inland. The northern-most birds migrate south while southern populations may be permanent residents in their locales.

They feed on wetland creatures like insects, frogs, crustaceans, and fish, often walking along raking the bottom with their feet to stir up a meal.

I took this picture on Hatteras Island in Buxton. The camera was an Olympus FE 240 and it was in the fall. This dead tree is in the tidal marsh of the road that goes to the lighthouse and the beach.
