La Garzetta

Assidua e numerosa frequentatrice della Pialassa, la Garzetta (Egretta garzetta) è sicuramente l’airone più conosciuto a Marina Romea.

La si vede infatti spesso lungo le rive intenta a procacciarsi il cibo. La Garzetta ha il becco nero e i piedi gialli (sembra proprio che abbia dei calzettini corti di un bel colore giallo) e alla sua elegante silhouette contrasta
una voce roca e sgarbata.

Un tempo veniva cacciata per le sue belle piume, le “egrette” appunto, che esibisce durante il periodo riproduttivo. Le piume avevano una funzione ornamentale per i cappelli per le signore, soprattutto in Nord America.
