Spider! and I were out hitting a few State Parks this weekend and had a few roadside attractions on our list so stopped at Grotto Park to check out the otter there. Glad we did because unbeknownst to us there is an egret rookery right here with over 50 nests. We got lucky stopping by this particular time of year with all of the nests being occupied. I don't know how long the rookery is occupied but it's a fascinating, easily accessible event to watch and I recommend anyone living close by to give it a visit. Here's a recent article about it:

Here's a nearby cache: Grotto Overview

edit note: correcting the city where the Rookery is located.
