Gatorland’s Taxi Service

Great Egret on Alligator at Gatorland 3-8-16 by Lee

You have seen these photos before, but don’t remember sharing the videos of the Great Egret and Great Blue Heron using

Gatorland’s Taxi Service.

To say they are somewhat nuts is mild. It is amazing how some mixed critters seem to get along, though.

We always enjoy our trips over to Orlando to see the activity. Sometimes weird and other times fine. The first video shows the Egret trying to let the gator to start moving.  :)

“By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.” (Psalms 41:11-12 KJV)

Gatorland Birdwatching Trips

  1. Gatorland is a great place for birdwatching, Lee, as you and Dan know well. Thanks to you 2, I was privileged to visit there, to view birds — but certainly NOT to experience the “taxi service” there. As you observe birds in marshy-water habitats I was, earlier this week, in a very different habitat — the arid and rocky desert trails of Palo Duro Canyon, not far from Amarillo (Texas) — and, on Friday (3-16-AD2016), under a juniper tree I there saw a male cardinal!

    • Maybe the Taxi Service wasn’t running the day you were there. :)
      Palo Duro Canyon must have been just as interesting. No matter where you go, normally, the Lord has an avian wonder to behold.
