This Green Heron was photographed at the Venice Rookery in Venice, Florida. The Venice Rookery is a tiny island in a small pond that is just loaded with nesting wading birds. There were Great Blue Herons, Great Ergrets, Green Herons, Snowy Egrets, and Anhingas all nesting on the tiny island in the Rookery. See my blog post below for more information.
