Egret At A Rookery

Egret At A Rookery

In a recent article I presented a Great Blue landing in this Cypress with an Egret nest nearby. (click here to view)

This is the ‘flip side’ to that. This is that same tree, the Egrets now working the nest with a Great Blue just below them.

In the second image one of those same Herons is guarding their nest site.

The Cypress here is a perfect nest spot. They have learned to ignore each other.

  1. One happy family of Egrets and Herons. This is unbelievable that they nest almost together. What is good that they learned how to ignore each other. Fantastic captures, Ted and a fantastic story!!!
