Well, it’s mating time here in Florida for many of our Herons and Egrets. Not that Woodstock is in their family, but he made his efforts.
We haven’t been to Gatorland yet this year, but reports are coming in for the mating of some and the hatching of other birds over there.
Thought you might enjoy seeing some of the previous year’s photos of mating rituals. Maybe Woodstock can improve his technique from seeing them.
The birds even brighten up their faces (lore) for mating. Wonder what Woodstock’s beak would look like?
“Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.” (Psalms 104:17 KJV)
When they get through all that displaying, eventually, we should start seeing some of these around there.
Now! To find the time to get over to Gatorland. It’s only about 50 miles away.
