Jefferson Island Rookery

My wife, grandson and I took a trip to Jefferson Island Rookery recently to see what was up with the birds in the Rookery.

The setting sun nicely lit a white juvenile Little Blue Heron hanging around in the trees.

This first year Little Blue Heron transitioning into adult-like plumage was a different looking bird and certainly cool to witness.
A Cattle Egret landed in a tree and added his stick to his nest.

This Cattle Egret in his magnificent breeding plumage was continually hounded for food by his chicks.

'Golden Hour' placed a golden glow on this Cattle Egret as he set on the edge of a tree limb.

The baby Roseate Spoonbills were just plain cute with their little spatula beaks.

An adult Roseate Spoonbill showed himself on the edge of a limb later in the day.

My wife and I had a great time observing the variety of birds and chicks and look forward to going back one day next year.
