It was mid-May and birds were still gathering sticks for nests. All morning long they were flying back and forth from one set of bushes to another.

Cattle egrets were doing the same.

It’s always busy in the mornings at the bird rookery in Gatorland. Wild birds are still coming in to nest over the lake full of alligators. The mangroves were filled with nests in different stages. Some had parents still sleeping on eggs, some had newborn babies, some had almost adult babies still screaming to be feed. Lots of fun activities to take pictures of.
