The pretty flapping of the wings on a pine tree breeding ground for egrets and herons Pomae-ri, Yangyang-gun, Gangwon Province Pomae-ri, Yangyang, the breeding ground for egrets and herons Natural Monument No. 229 The Eastern Coast's largest breeding ground where more than 1,000 egrets and herons are watched. In the wide lake and stream around the breeding site, the egrets and herons live on amphibians and fish. Every spring, the birds nest on the trees and lay 2 to 4 eggs. The pair-bonds sit on their eggs together and hunt for food by turns. From ancient times, there is a saying that people have loved egrets, likening their aloof and detached figures to those of classical scholars and especially, they treasured those egrets as the community in which the birds stay are getting rich. Belonging to the heron family like egret, the heron is ash-colored in body with head collar and a tail black. Egrets and herons are similar in size and trait and so those birds frequently live in flocks for the breeding seasons. When the autumn draws and the little birds grow, those birds fly southward.
