Description

The natural rookery at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm is a magical place to photograph beginning in March. This picture was taken in late March when many of the great egrets and wood storks are engaging in nest building behavior. The males fly back and forth all day to nearby trees to strip branches and vines for their nests. The males can be quite obsessive in this behavior and it is a joy to watch.
