Dawn is a great time for birding because the birds-to-people ratio is usually favorable. Combined with the potential for migratory birds traveling ahead of a storm front, I had high hopes for this outing.
The wood stork rookery was in all its screeching, flapping, croaking glory. This is a public park with heavy foot traffic, so the birds are well used to people. Lucky for me, I had the place to myself!
As the sun came up, it became easier to see the babies. Depending on your point of view, this could be a good thing, or not!
The rising sun made for some interesting silhouettes!
Check them out in the Audubon Room!
