Where to See Egrets

Assateague Island




The egrets on Assateague seem to be accustomed to photographers. I've taken pictures of them before, perhaps from this same spot along the road.

This is a wildlife refuge, carefully managed to protect the species that make this home. It's a wonderful place, but wear insect repellent because the mosquitoes are hungry!

  1. I have never seen an egret in person. Wonderful habitat for them and safe too. It's a shame that water and bird watching usually means biting bugs.. Thank you for linking into Nature Notes this week....Michelle

  6. I love Assateague. The mosquitoes weren't too bad when we went - except around the lighthouse and in one area one morning when I was running on a trail.
