Last weekend we saw several egrets wading in water alongside the South Point Road. Amy took this photo of one egret flying aver the marsh. There is something beautiful and inspiring in encountering wildlife in their natural settings. Fortunately, this is a common sight on Ocracoke.

    The snowy egret is an endangered species in the state of Ohio. During the 19th and early 20th century it was hunted to near extinction. Killed for the plumage. that is a fancy word for feathers. The food chain horror--- Before DDT was outlawed, scientists linked the use of the pesticide to bird egg shells cracking under the weight of the nesting birds . Those birds appear to fly very fast.
