Egrets and herons were nearly driven to extinction by fashionable hatmakers more than a century ago. Today they are a popular symbol of wildlife conservation. Bruce Robinson talks with a scientist who studies them.
Dr. John Kelley will talk about the history and present status of Herons and Egrets in the Bay Area, in a lecture Thursday night at the Sonoma Veteran’s building. The video below, also from Audubon Canyon Ranch, captured mating behaviors in a good-sized egret rookery.
