Last month I noticed some flashes of white at the rookery shared by herons and egrets.
The herons are first to take up residence but they are hard to spot from a distance.
Once I knew they were in residence I drove to a church parking lot and walked across some fields to get close enough.
Not too close, though, I don't want them to abandon this rookery as they did an earlier one. (A golf course had been built under that rookery.)
There was a lot of activity, birds were coming
and birds were leaving.
They were flying off,
off to do their bird jobs.
I didn't get a chance to share these before we headed out on our trip so better late than never. You can enlarge these for a better view of the action.
I'm linking this to Bird Photography Weekly, you might like to check it out to see what other birders are doing.
