Egrets have Arrived

The Egret arrived late and most found nests but some were still looking. They were doing a lot of mating and nest building. The nests all looked different. Some heron built nests over Cormorant and the Cormorant had to build another to avoid getting droppings in their nests.

These are in the order they were taken. Egret squabble going on over a nest site.
