A beautiful day…

We made a stop at the rookery today. As usual I was a bit ahead of myself, or ahead of Mother Nature. I found myself a bit disappointed because there were no fuzzy little heads bobbing up and down and demanding to be fed. Truth be told I should have known by the decibel level that we were still in the nest building stage. And the funny business stage.

Here you have the funny business.
This is some serious nest building by these black crowned night herons.
We are having a disagreement over this bird’s identity. Is it a tricolor heron, or a little blue? I say tricolor.
This Woodstork was tiptoeing through the tree tops.

Yes, it was a beautiful day, especially if you were in the shade, and the breeze was blowing. A little hot in the sun, but how can we possibly complain?
