pg--we have a great blue heron rookery along the River Road (Hwy 128) and last time I looked, it had 11 herons in nests distributed over the huge tree (cottonwood?) You will have to check that out next time you are in the area!
Anhingas YG like Cormorants but different. HA!It was hard to get a line in the water with these guys gnt.
LOL . . . too funny! Bragging rights aren't limited to us humans. Hmmmmm. What kind of birds?
great photo pg with all those fishermen ............
Thank you Hanne.Warbler I guess they have to let the water get back into the ground and it serves two purposes. One very big one, for the birds.
It's the same all over!!! Thanks so very much PG!!
You found a good spot. Sewage treatment ponds are notibly a good birding place all over. Thats nice with the boardwalks.
Thank you Ms chickster and you should have seen the size of the fish they caught.Sally they stay in the sun to dry them and then can go back and fish a little bit more.
A great shot young man!
So many wings unfurled.... Mucho patience, Your Photoness.... Thank you.... :) :)
My pleasure Rob and they do get a little on the loud side.
What a beautiful array of wings!!! I love the feather patterns. I can imagine them all squawking!! Thanks pg.
These are from a park in West Palm Beach Florida. It is a little pocket park that is attached to the sewerage treatment facility and this is the clean water that is discharged and allowed to go back into the ground. The property is about 50 or so acres and a wonderful place for the birds to roost and eat. The water is crystal clear and has abundant amount of fish and plants for the birds to thrive. The area is surrounded by houses so they cannot have any foul smells coming from this area. They have a wooden boardwalk over much of the place so you can see the birds and all the other wildlife in the park.
Nothing like a convention of fishermen. What area are all these photos coming from, if you don't mind me asking?
