About the Book
Wildlife photographers William & Beth Tetterton travel worldwide to capture images & raise awareness of endangered species. They are delighted to bring to life Great Egret Secrets, the vivid photographic journey of the Great Egret throughout its rookery breeding season. The adult birds are photographed from their initial display of stunning white breeding plumage, pair bonding behavior, aggression and nesting, to egg incubation and the hatching of a new generation. Crisp close-up photography continues the story as the chicks grow from hatchlings to fledglings with many secrets revealed along the way. Chicks experience crowded life in the nest, sibling rivalry, feeding, dramatic physical transformations and finally flight. The Great Egret has made an amazing comeback, from being hunted to near extinction for its beautiful plumage a century ago, to now thriving again in the wild. This is their photographic story.
