Egret Colony on Google Campus

I visited the egret colony on the Google campus in Mountain view on Sunday.    They blocked off a section of Shorebird Way to through traffic to protect the birds.  I saw many nests high up on the sycamore trees, and the birds were making all kinds of noise.

Here is a picture of a Great Egret in his/her nest with a fluffy baby,DSC_0022

I think this one is Snowy.  I don’t see the yellow feet, but it has a dark beak.DSC_0031

 

I’m not sure what was going on…Two Great Egret in love?DSC_0051

Besides us, there was another bird watching those two.DSC_0067

This one was working hard to find twigs for his nest.DSC_0033
