I went to Gatorland again today. And, you know what? BABIES! I got pics of a lot of them. The male Snowy Egrets and Tricolored Herons were displaying, too. For some reason, the DC Cormorant couples were playing tug-of-war with twigs. Today was the first time I heard a Cormorant make a noise, too. It might also be the first time I heard a Snowy make noise but I don't remember. It was really great to see all the nests and nesting behavior in the rookery. Great Egrets actually act a lot like Great Blue Herons when brooding. They sound similar, too. Does the size of the bird have anything to do with the sound of the bird? Anyway,...

Pileated Woodpecker - saw this big fella just as I was leaving the Gatorland Rookery. They fly very quickly for big birds.
Catbird - seen fiddling with branches and dining on berries among the swamp walk.
Black-Crowned Night Heron - a pair hanging out by the gift shop in the shade. PHOTOS
Common Grackle - flitting to and fro with berries in its bill.
Green Heron - 2 of them standing yards away from each other. Maybe a brooding pair, maybe unrelated and just hanging out in the same area. PHOTOS
Great Blue Heron - a few males scattered about the park, trying to keep cool in intense muggy heat. PHOTOS
Tricolored Heron - a bunch of males searching for twigs in pairs, a few females sitting on NESTS and turning EGGS! Will have babies in April. PHOTOS
Anhinga - both males and females NEST sitting in the farther reaches of the rookery, some males twig-fetching for their ladies. PHOTOS
Double Crested Cormorant - NESTing all over the rookery and park, males also fetching twigs. Weird brooding behavior between males and females. Will have a 2nd round of babies in April. PHOTOS
Black Vulture - pairing off and building NESTS by the Anhinga and Wood Storks. PHOTOS
Wood Stork - NESTing in a large group and twig-collecting. Will have babies in April. PHOTOS
Snowy Egret - lots of NESTS and displaying males. I actually saw a pair mate this morning. Will have babies in April. PHOTOS
Cattle Egret - 1 brooding pair present in the rookery, the male displaying and begging for food at the same time. PHOTOS
Great Egret - a ridiculous amount of NESTS and BABIES and displaying males strewn throughout the rookery. PHOTOS
Boat-Tailed Grackles - gathering nesting materials and food.
White-Tailed Deer - lowing among the ferns next to the swamp walk. At least one baby present. PHOTOS

I'm going back next month. Then, there'll be Tricolored Heron chicks, more Great Egret chicks, Snowy Egret chicks, Wood Stork chicks, more Cormorant chicks, Anhinga chicks, and maybe Cattle Egret chicks (if I can find the nest). I never expected to see so much in one day. I saw a couple of raptors on the way that I have yet to identify and a wader I'm not too sure about. I'll post photos in a few minutes. Bis bald, buy bonds.

I'm wondering if you can tell me what this is.

I need to know whether it was taken at a garden sporting exotic flowers or if it was just a random find in your area before I can ID it. Sorry.
