It’s Mother’s Day tomorrow and these birds are about to be very busy moms.
There were a few babies in the far back of the wood stork rookery in north Tampa in late March. You can barely make out the fuzz in the back nest. I was a little early for babies but was in the area so I stopped by for a quick visit.
Many of the wood storks were still fighting over nesting spots.
Many were still bringing in sticks to add to the nest.
A few great egrets were also looking for sticks.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms out there.
