Location: Venice Area Audubon Rookery, Venice, FL
The Venice Area Audubon Rookery is a great place to photograph or observe birds. There is a small island in the center of a small lake inhabited by at least one alligator. Presumably the alligator is a deterrent to predators, so there are a large number of wading birds that nest not he island. This great blue heron pair is raising their chick.
