Scruffy looking baby egrets. I think these were snowy egrets.

Baby anhingas already grown up.
Tiny baby wood stork on the nest.
Baby great egrets in various stages of growing up.
I was watching this almost grown baby great egret exercising his wings. I don’t think he had fledged yet. He kept practicing flapping but never made it off the bush. He was probably gone in another day or so.
It’s fun watching the baby birds grow up in the bushes along the lake at Gatorland. The trip in late May provided babies from all stages of growing up.
now, you made my evening!!!! those babies look so funny, I couldn’t help laughing.
They look so cute and fierce when young, and very elegant when mature! Lovely shots
That young egret looks so majestic spreading its wings.
It was so delightful to see this growth story of baby birds.
A great series of photos. The fluffy babies are so cute but it is very interesting to see them with varying amounts of plumage.
These are so cute! Would love to observe some.
