In Search of the Rookery

2016.05.20

Picked up a little fringing on this one for some reason.

Coasting in to the rookery with some nesting material.

Broke through some of the cedar trees to run into this old Honda, lawnmower, and pile of rusted metal.

More nesting material.

This was the largest egrets that I saw in the area.

I played with this one to get the faded out effect.

Just at the edge of the rookery this one was watching me like a hawk.

Just a little blurred but in breeding plumage.

Most of the trees in the rookery were dying or dead and the ground was littered with broken eggs and feces. This happens everywhere I have seen a rookery.

Grackle in the field nearby looking for something to eat. Pounced just after I got this shot.

This little bloom was on a wild jew and was only about a half inch across.

Went out Wednesday in search of a rookery. Found it! I also found some other things along the way. I had been seeing quite a few egrets of different species passing over an area about a mile from my house. Circled the area and did not see anywhere near as many birds so it came down to tromping through the woods. Here are the results.
