Baby tricolored heron looking at me.
Was he giving me the peace sign? No, just scratching an itch.
At first they were quiet. Then the screaming started. They must have known mom was close by.
Mom shows up at the nest and chaos starts.
Screaming goes on.
A short video of the baby being fed. It’s funny to watch those little wings going so fast. Mom pauses in the beginning to regurgitate the food up. Yum!
I stopped by the zoo in mid-May to see if there were any more spoonbills hanging around. No spoonbills but there were a few nests with baby tricolored herons and blue herons. All were in the bushes and palm trees over the alligator exhibit.
