A day in the life of a baby egret.








The Three Stooges were very animated at Gatorland during my earlier trip in April. These baby great egrets were the most photographed nest on the day. Mostly, because they were so visible and the babies were constantly moving and checking things out. Not to mention how loud they were, constantly chirping for mom to feed them. The best thing was when they stretched their wings. You could see their pin feathers growing underneath. In the last picture, you can see how skinny the bones look. These babies still have a lot of growing to do before that first flight. Although, by now they are probably long gone.
