Still only see chicks in Great Egret Nests. The first hatched are getting big and are a handfull for the adults. Adults not always in nest now (get mugged by chicks). Two of the nests with older chicks that had two chicks in each nest now have only one chick. Guess it is survival of the fittest (natural selection). Saw first Anhinga nest, most are too far back in the brush. Some were still working on nests.

You can see my thread on First Outing With DA* 300mm F4 for photos of chicks by themselves.

Will try to continue following this natural area.

Hey - which one of the anhingas does the head belong to? (Just kidding - I know it is the female - they don't call them Snakebirds for nothing!) :G

You are to be congratulated for sticking with this project.

The lighting on the Egret in flight is A-1! Great series!

Ed,

White feather is very difficult to deal. You did really well indeed. Thanks for posting and likely you are going to give the da* lens a bit of workout. I envy you guys
