Home Construction

When I visited the Venice Rookery (Florida) this past February, there was tons of activity by the Great Egrets. Besides the one pair of egrets that were being incubated (in last Friday’s post), all of the other egrets were busy attracting mates or collecting sticks and building their nests. Here are a few of my favorite images of these beautiful birds as they worked on their nests:

This guy flew from the rookery to the bank near where I was photographing from:

And then took it back to his nest:

This guy was bringing in a “special” piece of furniture … one decorated with Spanish Moss:
