Egret Foraging at the Breakwater in Galilee

It seemed somewhat ironic to find a bird as elegant as the Egret foraging around in the rocks and seaweed in Galilee. Even so, there we found him early in the morning. 

The Egret is a bird that has a fascinating story. In the late 19th century, they were hunted nearly to extinction due to their highly desirable plumes. Conservation efforts followed as a result as well as some of the first bird protection laws. 

What we see here is the typical stance of the Egret while hunting. They will stand immobile in the Heron fashion. With sudden lightning speed, they will jab at fish with their sharp bill, capturing their dinner.

A lot of research today. This is Ilône, an island from my project Rivages, and some research for the Griffons, the main transportation and fishing acolytes for the inhabitants of the island. Basically huge pelicans with hands.
