pine island rookery at sunset
2003-04-14 - 11:11 a.m.
The last event of Bird Fest was another amazing spectacle on a
private property called Pine Island located a short way outside
Here we enjoyed a wine and cheese party while
observing a huge rookery of the various white Egrets, mostly
Great Egrets, with fluffy youngsters begging and elbowing each
other for food.
At sunset, hundreds of White Ibis adults and
young dropped in to roost in the cypress trees thick with Spanish
moss, six or a dozen or two dozen birds at a time,
in a mini-tornado of Ibis that was breath-taking against
the pink sky.
Here and there, the lighter bodies of Ibis and
Egret were accented by a posing Anhinga.
