Saturday's Critters #72
Happy May and happy weekend, everyone! It's Saturday and it's time to share your critters.. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who has linked up in the past and for those who are linking in on this week's critter party. And of course I always appreciate my blogging friends stopping by just for a visit.
These shots are all from Kissimmee's Gatorland in Florida.. Their rookery is probably one of the largest I have ever seen. They say the the heronry or I call them a rookery is popular with the Egrets, Herons, Storks and the Anhinga because of the alligators. The birds nests are high enough above the gators and they feel protected from critters raiding their nest such as the raccoon.. The raccoons will not go near the alligators..

I loved seeing the egret chicks up close, usually they are high up in the trees..
One nest had some Egret chicks that looked a little older..
This photo you can see some of the alligators laying in the water right below the egrets and their nest..
This Great Egret is showing off beautiful feathers and the pretty green color on his eyes.
This is a look at the rookery from the top of the tower..it only shows a small part of the rookery at Gatorland.. I hope you enjoyed this post and now I am looking forward to seeing your critters...
