UTSWMC Rookery

Got a tip that the great egrets were starting to nest and in breeding plumage.  Since Miss Sharon is up in Illinois helping Corie thought I might as well load some gear and head down there to see what the fuss was all about.

The University of Texas Southwest Medical Center UTSWMC has set aside a 4 or 5 acera section of land as a rookery.

Easy parking and a very easy walk all the way around the rookery.  The light was perfect in the late afternoon.

Black Night Herons are just starting to come in and I saw at least 4 pairs.PBKJ6588-FrameShop
