Snowy Goes A Courtin
Snowy Egret- Spring Mating Display

By Evergreen, Colorado Artist Barb Adkins

In the Spring the Snowy Egrets look for their mate by growing elaborate feathers to show off how handsome they are. Their springtime display takes the cake. These birds are so elegant and gorgeous all year long.

They live and wade by the lakes and catch small fish and crabs for their dinner. They then fly to their neighborhood nesting site, called a Rookery to nest and rest for the night.
At the turn of the 19th Century these bird feathers were much coveted by ladies for their hats. At that time they were almost hunted to extinction for the feathers. What a sorry state that would be.

9" x 6.75" x 7/8" The 7/8" edge of this painting is painted as a Gallery Edge. It is painted to match the picture. It may be framed or hung on the wall as is. It may also be framed in a silhouette frame that will show off the Gallery edge painting. I like to paint the edges as part of the picture to give you a choice of how to hang it. When you are coming into a room or down a hall the effect is to give a color visual of something to see that is different or unexpected, rather than the regular edge of wood frame.
