Spent a morning birding with the Pelican Island Audubon Sumer Adventure Camp at Egret Marsh Stormwater Park and, surprisingly for this time of year, got some nice bird photos that you can see via Birding Egret Marsh with the Summer Adventure Camp
A female Anhinga became quite agitated at the approach of a group of student birders at Egret Marsh Stormwater Park. Unfortunately, the trail went right under her and she took flight rather than submit to the indignity of a close inspection.
Egret Marsh Stormwater Park is a popular night roost for Sandhill Cranes. At sunset one night an astounding 149 Sandhill Cranes were recorded landing on the algae mat that cleanses canal water where the large birds spend the night. As the skies darkened at sunset, the majority of the Cranes made their way to the Park. With darkness falling, the Sandhill Cranes settle in for the night.
