The Rookery … a real treat

Somewhere on the backroads between Georgia and South Carolina, I caught a glimpse of a lot of “white” out of my peripheral vision.   I had to travel about a half mile before I was able to turn around and pull off the side of the road.   I was thrilled to stumble across the rookery.   I counted about 100 egrets in the area.   I hated to leave.   But! I noticed a couple of days later, after downloading the photos …  the wood stork standing back to back with the egret and another sitting in the nest.  I didn’t even notice him while standing there.   A real treat.

Huntley Meadows

My first, but, not my last visit to Huntley Meadows.   Huntley Meadows Park is over 1500 acres of land and 1/2 miles of wetland boardwalks located in Northern Virginia, just off of Route 1.   A great birding spot — with over 200 species identified in the park.   🙂

Meet up, geese style
