“Suddenly, this little woods-girl is horror-stricken to hear a clear whistle not very far away” (Jewett). The stranger, who carries a gun and professes himself to murdering the animals that Sylvia holds dear demands the location of “the white heron” and promises “ten dollars to anybody who could show it” to him (Jewett). Sylvia, who has always lived a humble life, dreams of what riches the ten dollars could buy, but acknowledges the high price paid in love. As the stranger lingers, he gives Sylvia little gifts, ensnaring her in his manipulative trap like one of his birds. Paralyzed with indecision, Sylvia faces a choice between the life that she has come to love and the seductive words and promises of a stranger who would destroy it.
Coming of Age When people begins maturing and coming of age they are forced to make decisions that will forever shape the way they are. In “A White Heron” by Sarah Orne Jewett, Sylvia is faced with a decision to either tell the hunter of the heron’s location and condemn it to death or to conceal the heron’s location and preserve the life of the bird. Although the question seems superficial, there is a much deeper question at hand as to what kind of person Sylvia sees herself becoming. She has the option to stay true to her values or betray them for money and promises offered by the hunter.

The prompt to the story “The White Heron” briefly describes Sylvia on her quest to find the white heron she had seen before. Jewett’s use of imagery makes the setting a lot more vivid in the readers mind, as if he/she were Sylvia. And through this imagery and point of view, we learn that she clearly knows her way around the woods and that she was also ordered by this “stranger” to find the heron’s nest. Through Sylvia’s description of the stranger, we can infer that he/she must be a hunter of some sorts trying to kill the heron. Although there is not much direct evidence of the importance of the heron to Sylvia, we can infer that the heron’s importance can go both ways as the stranger most likely will give Sylvia a reward for finding the heron

Sir Thomas Wyatt the Elder’s “Whoso list to hunt” encompasses the love of a man for a beautiful, yet unattainable woman. Wyatt compares the unattainable love to the hunt of a hind, a female deer.
