Brown birds high up in the trees

The wild cormorants and anhingas nest in the highest trees at the bird rookery at Gatorland. High over the alligator lake, they build the tiniest nests.

This almost grown cormorant was still being fed by the parent. He was digging way down deep to get that fish that was stuck down his parent’s throat.

This handsome anhinga was still grabbing sticks for a nest.

Another one tried for the longest time to break off this branch.

Bringing it back to the nest!
