Latch key chicks


Three baby egrets  (actually I think there are four in the bundle of feathers, but you can only see three faces) waitfor mom and dad to get home with the groceries for today.  The shot is at the rookery -- Oschner Island -- at Audubon Park in New Orleans.

They look quite patient in this photo. No sense complaining when there is no one around to do anything about it. I bet when a parent returns with dinner, they will squawk and become impatient.

Your photos of egrets are truly wonderful. I would love to have a book of them.

I really admire your bird photos. You seem to have a special feel for them.

Love their crazy beedy eyes looking at you. Terrific closeup Steve.
