Nice. I assume you will be following the progress of the rookery. I look forward to more as it develops. :-)

Hi Ed,

Great work capturing the different species! My personal favorites are the two Egret shots. both are outstanding.

Well Done!

The rookery is in a new natural area that just opened to the public last Friday. The area is in Davie (Broward County) Florida. I went to check out the trail in the park. It is basically a hammok full of beautiful old Oak Trees. I was disapointed since there was no wildlife in the area. I was leaving the park, wich exits beside a small lake with this island in it. On the backside of the island I saw the Great Egret nests. I turned around, parked my car and went on foot to check things out.

I hope to get back when the chicks start to hatch. Most of the Egret Nests had eggs in them. I saw no sign of eggs in the Heron nests yet.

Great stuff! Lots of variety, not only in the species, but in the poses as well!
