Just a few crazy baby tricolored herons from my recent trip to Gatorland in Orlando. The mangrove bushes were full of nests. I think these birds get the prize for being the funniest looking babies. Most of the great egret babies were getting big and the tricolored heron babies were just being born. I think all of these are only a few days old. They were constantly screaming to be fed. Next are the blue herons and cattle egrets. They start a little later in the season. They were just building nests and sitting on eggs. Hopefully, those will be born in time for my trip in May.
Amazing shots of the nestlings! They look pretty demanding.
wow, you got some fabulous shots! such uglies/cuties!
They are so ugly they are cute … kind of like the vulture babies. I love that you have the opportunity to take all these wonderful pictures … are there any homes for sale near you?? 🙂
