More like sibling rivalry than brotherly love. Baby great egrets.
Who’s going to win this battle?
“Mom, where’s my fish?”
“All together now, MOM, where’s our fish?”
This tiny one’s beak was bigger than the rest of his body.
I took this from across the lake. I rarely see baby wood storks.
I also took this anhinga nest from across the lake. The middle baby had his head in mom’s beak getting a bite.
A handful of shots from my trip to Gatorland in mid-April. The great egrets, which are usually born first, are getting big. The ones that I took in mid-March look like full-grown adults now. The baby tricolored herons were just being born when I was there. More on those later.

Very nice pictures especially the top one, v cute.
great shots! such ugly and insistent babies! 🙂
Great series of the joy of parenthood!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Fabulous, Dina. Photos we’ll never be able to get, I’m sure.
Great photos. I think those little birds are cute!
What a hoot! Baby birds (of any size) are such fun the watch — and always demanding! How do their parents *do it*?!!!!!! Great shots!
Great pics. I have pictures of the beach to share this week.
What a great shot down the baby’s throat with all the detail of the tongue!!! You must have had a joyous time getting all these great baby pictures. Thank you for sharing them.
Hi! Just starting subscribing to your blog. Fabulous images in this post.
Your season is way ahead of ours. The Egrets are still in breeding mode here. Even so, we will probably never see their babies. They nest up high in the trees in a colony of other egrets, herons and cormorants. The pictures are wonderful. A nice way of being able to see the babies. Thank you …

Fabulous baby photos! That fifth shot is awesome.
This is so stunning to watch… I love it!
Greetings from Holland,
You really captured the intensity in the Great Egret babies determination to survive. The pictures were stunning, and reminded me of the Blue Herons here at Stanley Park. This year’s chicks are just a few days old. I can hear them, but their nests are too high up to see them yet. Is Gatorland like a zoo or wildlife reserve? Are the egrets in captivity?
Awesome shots! Happy World Bird Wednesday!
Beautiful shots, Dina! It’s wonderful you have the opportunity to photograph those nests! Really nice pics of the babies!
almost prehistoric looking juveniles
Quality shots – even the scary youngster
Great photos. Those fluffy babies look cute – but certainly don’t act cute!
Love the birds…so cute!
Great pictures you show.
Wishing you a good day.
