A couple of months ago I blogged about the egrets nesting behind the Miller House on Island Green at DeBordieu, just south of Pawleys Island. I was showing property down there today and snapped this shot. The baby egrets have hatched and are beginning to leave the nest! I have never, EVER seen so many egrets in one tree. In fact, we’re all calling it the “Egret Tree.”
On a personal note: I have a baby leaving the nest as well. Tomorrow I am flying with Joey to Ithaca College in New York for orientation. I know just how those momma egrets feel. I’ll be back in the office on Thursday, just in time for the big 4th of July weekend and celebration at DeBordieu! Exciting times!
