One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2015—Dancin’ On The Treetops

Today Connie and I visited Smith Oaks (High Island) Rookery on Bolivar Peninsula near Galveston, Texas. We saw hundreds of Great Egrets and Roseate Spoonbills that were in the process of building nests and mating. I was excited because the birds were just 50 feet away from us and were not disturbed by our presence across a narrow creek. The egrets were carrying twigs and sticks to enhance their nests and we even saw two eggs in one of the egret nests but it was too early for any of the eggs to hatch. This egret had just delivered a twig to its mate to add to the nest and it appeared to be dancing in the treetops.
