Things are rockin' at High Island's rookery

Posted: Tuesday, April 8, 2014 2:32 pm | Updated: 2:44 pm, Tue Apr 8, 2014.

The rookery, part of the Audubon bird sanctuaries on High Island, is a hot spot for birders. Pink and white wings flurry back and forth. The air is filled with a cacophony of animalistic sounds. Every year, egrets, herons, ibis, cormorants and roseate spoonbill flock to the trees on top a small island within a lake in order to attract a mate, build a nest and raise chicks.

The light for photography is best early in the morning or late in the afternoon. But on a blue-skied day, any moment provides for great opportunity to catch the waders in flight.
