The snowy egret is common on St. Martin today, often seen on our salt ponds where it feeds and nests. I would also guess that it was a common resident 200 years ago. However, 100 years ago it may not have been here at all. It seems strange, but you can find out why at my St. Martin Book Fair workshop this Saturday from 11am-12:30 at University of St. Martin. The workshop is free and designed for people of all ages and backgrounds. You can sign up here: https://www.facebook.com/events/368785136565286/
Also, please feel free to invite any friends who might be interested in learning more about local wildlife.
