PIC OF THE WEEK: 04/16/12 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2012 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Great Egrets

(Ardea alba)

Where: Orlando, FL • Gatorland • 14501 South Orange Blossom Trail • www.gatorland.com

Notes: We had been told by many of our birder and photographer friends that Gatorland in Orlando Florida was a good place to go to photograph birds. We had scheduled this for the final day of a week long spring trip. I think my wife said it best, "I wish we had come here earlier in the week." Because if we had we might have gone back everyday possible. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The facility was pleasant considering it's main public attraction was Alligators. The main `gator pond in the back was about as long as a football field, but only about fifteen yards wide. This shallow lake was the BIG Alligators habitat. Spanning the full length of the west side was a boardwalk with a three story viewing tower in the center. It was lined with palmetto, mangrove and various bushes on all sides. In nearly ALL of the vegetation was a rookery like I have never seen. There were Tricolored, Black-crowned and Little Blue Herons; Anhingas and Cormorants; Wood Storks and Spoonbills; plus Great, Snowy and Cattle Egrets. The amazing thing about all of this was that some nests were only a few feet from the boardwalk. Other nests were immediately adjacent the walkway and presented excellent opportunity for courtship and flight shots. We hope to go back someday.
