Wow Martha these Egret shots are superb.
That is a lot of egrets & herons on one place for sure.
I could spend many days in that rookery.

Speaking of Great Blue Herons, you might find this link interesting as it is of a 'Heron Cam" the City of Vancouver installed at the site of a Heron nesting area in Stanley Park.

Thanks, Wolf I am sure I will visit the heron cam a lot more. As for the rookery here, I plan to visit the it many more times. In fact I will probably stop by today. Can't wait for the babies to appear, but since many of the birds were still building their nests, it will probably be a month or so before they begin to hatch.

Week 13 (March 26 - April 1, 2015) Part 2 of 3

Birds I saw in the park:


American Robin (Male) par Ceropegia, on ipernity


Mockingbird par Ceropegia, on ipernity

In the mall parking lot where I go to take the photos of the rookery are what I like to call beggar birds. Birds that hang around waiting for folks to throw out some bread which, despite signs saying not to feed the birds, people do every day.

Some of the beggar birds:


Domestic Greylag Goose par Ceropegia, on ipernity


Canada Goose par Ceropegia, on ipernity


Feasting on Handouts par Ceropegia, on ipernity


Geese, Ducks, and a Gull par Ceropegia, on ipernity


Gulls and Geese par Ceropegia, on ipernity

Week 13 (March 26 - April 1, 2015) Part 3 of 3

This part consists of photos of the rookery. I made two visits during the week. On the second visit, many cormorants were perched on the trees in the rookery. I believe most were migrants on their way north. Most were gone when I visited today.
