Last Wednesday, early morning risers saw a big white bird perched in a water birch near the mouth of Knapps Creek. When the visitor took wing to travel on down the river to a warmer climate, it was recognized as a great white heron, or showy egret. The local name is white crane. This traveler got this far north a bit too early for comfort. For many years white herons were not seen on the Greenbrier River. The beautiful birds had about all been killed off for their making plumes aigrettes--to dress extravag- ant hats for women of fashion. A stern law put a stop to this needless, cruel waste. It was bad enough to kill the old birds for their really wonderful plumes. What was worse, the plumes were at their finest when the baby birds were helpless in the nest. Killing the parent birds meant the babies would perish miserably. This killing at both ends of the life line came near putting an end to the aigrettes.
