Overview

Picture over 30,000 birds each year returning to a small island of cypress trees to breed and raise their young. This breeding place-called a rookery- is located in the north end of Bluff Lake at Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge, located in central Mississippi. From early spring, when the first flocks arrive, through mid-fall when the last group departs for the winter, the trees and sky are full of birds. Breeders include Cattle Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Great Egrets, Little Blue Herons and White Ibises. This book provides a brief introduction to the rookery and its residents, followed by a pictorial essay of life at the rookery, from arrival to departure.
