Take a look at some of these great pictures we got the other day of some egrets nesting at DeBordieu, just south of Pawleys Island.
Nesting is a natural instinct shared by birds and humans alike, when preparing a home for their families. In birds it is known as “going broody”, and is characterized by the insistence to stay on the nest as much as possible, and by laying new eggs.
In people, it’s characteristics range from cleaning out closets….to buying a new home!
Egrets nest in colonies, building nests in medium-sized trees. The nests are built of small sticks, usually over or near water, and sometimes lined with softer materials like grasses. Usually, 3, pale bluish-green eggs are laid. Both parents take turns incubating the eggs and feeding the chicks.
This colony of egrets is nesting in DeBordieu Colony, on a gorgeous tree, in the middle of a lagoon in the Island Green neighborhood, across the street from the beach. The pictures were taken from the back porch of the Miller Home, which is an incredible value, currently for sale at $1,195,000. Click here for details. The entertainment, provided by the egrets, comes at no extra charge.
There has never been a better time to purchase real estate at DeBordieu!
