  1. This is a fantastic capture, Tim. Great light, clarity and composition. A trifecta! 🙂 I loved photographing nesting egrets in SC. I must keep that in mind in CA.

    • Jane, thank you.
      You really need to make a point of coming up to Santa Rosa to see this rookery. It is well worth the visit with snowy, cattle and great egrets here. There are also night herons. All in their full mating plumage. What a grand sight.

      • Thank you for the info, Tim. We frequently go up to that area– will do. Must be the perfect time right now, I think…

      • There is a period of nest building, egg laying, hatching and then the chicks flying away. That maybe a 6 week period.
