The great egrets are starting to get that lime green color around their eyes. That means it’s mating time already.

Cormorants were fighting for nesting spots high up in the trees.

There’s a small rookery in a north Tampa neighborhood that is covered with nests in the spring. I found out about this little pond late last spring and most of the babies were almost grown up. I was near the area and stopped by to see if there were any babies yet in late January. I guess  it’s still too early for the egrets and storks to be nesting. Even though the eagles and owls already have them, the water birds are a little later. I’ll check back in late March.
