Egret Island


E.A. McIlhenny founded this bird colony — later called Bird City — in 1892 after plume hunters had slaughtered egrets by the thousands to provide feathers for fashionable ladies' hats.

Me and my beautiful daughter, Angelique
My beautiful granddaughter, Caitlin, observing the egrets.
