Audubon "Birds of America"

Snowy Egret
 Size 19.5 x 27 inches

Snowy Egret – Plate Reference #242
In the early spring of 1832 Audubon and his assistant George Lehman stayed at a home of John Bachman in Charleston, South Carolina. By March 25, Audubon wrote, thousands of snowy egrets had arrived there and “were seen in the marshes and rice fields, all in full plumage.” He probably painted this magnificent egret that same day, and Lehman added a landscape of a South Carolina plantation; the tiny figure of a hunter appears at far right.
