Great Egrets back at Pontchartrain Park nesting colony

Today I swung by the wader rookery in Pontchartrain Park (Bartholomew golf course).  The Great Egrets have returned to the nesting island in the pond near the southern end of the golf course, as in years past. About fifteen were visible from the road.

Great Egrets usually turn up at nesting colonies to begin breeding activities before the other heron/egret/ibis species.

Good birding,
