Cattle Egret Chicks

My, how fast they grow! While many of the snowy egrets are still sitting on eggs, some of the great egret chicks at the cemetery pond in Grand Case are getting pretty big. Our three egrets often nest in multi-species colonies, and typically the great egrets start first. The colony at the cemetery pond has spread out quite a bit this year after the preferred mangrove tree died, presumably due to the stress of supporting so many nests.
