Audubon Park Rookery and Others in New Orleans Area

Photos in this gallery were taken in three different locations--Audubon Park in New Orleans and in two swamp areas just outside of New Orleans. The egrets had a difficult breeding season in 2011. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers kept them from a rookery they had been coming to for over 30 years and they had to find a new location. At Audubon Park, some 300 egrets had already begun courting, mating and laying eggs when they suddenly all disappeared. The birds left and were not seen again.
