Great egrets are nesting now in Florida! The bird rookeries are full of activity. What a wonderful time of year!

    Extremely beautiful! The feathers seem to be large.

    P.S. I would be grateful if you could reply to the comment and send an email to me stating that you did so. I am having issues getting notifications.

      The nesting season is quite long in spring – it is a succession of various wading birds from March until June. My favorite time of year!
