Mention the name Chincoteague among a group of island goers and each may have different reasons for being attracted to this sea-side island. For some it is the beach, others travel there for the fishing and boating while others enjoy the browsing the little shops scattered about the island, and all enjoy the restaurants and the friendly folks at the local businesses. Among this group of Chincoteague enthusiast is a dedicated group of birders who value the Chincoteague NWR for the amazing birding opportunities it provides.
I captured the following photos of Great Egrets and a Snowy Egret along the roadside during my recent visit. Access here to some awesome wildlife photo opportunities frequently is only a few feet from your car's door if not out the window.
