Excerpt from A Few Notes on the Habits, Life History and Economic Value of Doves: The Raising of Young Waxwings, Ampeles Cedrorum
W. E. D. Scott in the Auk, Vol. IV, 1887, gives a terrible account of the wiping out of the beautiful American Egret. Years ago, in Florida, there were prairies white with the birds, and even many Of the adjoining islands were alive with Egrets. But what do we find now? Miles and miles of shore with perhaps a single solitary bird. These birds were killed by the hundreds of thousands annually; and the same may be said of its smaller cousin, the Snowy Egret, which, at one time abundant all through the Gulf States, is now all but extinct. Here the bull 's-eye for every hunter was the beautiful bunch of snow-white aigrettes.
F. M. Chapman (birds of Eastern North America) states: 1 have heard a plume hunter boast of killing 300 herons in a rookery in one afternoon. Another proudly stated that he and his companions had killed - Herons, Egrets and Terns during one winter.
