By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired State District Forester
An amazing sight appeared on Hopewell Acres this week, a congregation of eight Great Egrets.
We all are familiar with the Great Blue Heron which is a little larger than the Great Egret. However and whatever the Great Egret lacks in size is more than compensated for by its brilliant white plumage.
To see the sunshine glistening off the rippling current and highlighting the snow white plumage of this magnificent bird was a special event for me.
Egrets feed on fish, frogs, crayfish and insects. According to my observations this is a group of friends that have gathered down on Crocus Creek to do a little fishing.
They, however, seemed to be particularly interested in the grasshopper population.
I have yet to determine whether the fish or the grasshoppers were the main course although it might have been a matter of personal taste, so to speak.
The destination would sweeter be
