Description

I had the pleasure of visiting the St. Augustine rookery in mid-April of 2016 just at the peak of the Great Egret nesting. It seemed like everywhere we looked there were egret young clamoring to be fed, or adults tending youngsters. I spotted this nest back in a tree and watched while the adult preened and tended a single very small nestling. It was touching to see how very gentle the adult was when feeding the nestling and when moving about in the nest.
