Venice Rookery

I had a bad day with my big lens.  It seems to have an issue with focusing to infinity and there abouts in auto mode.  I didn’t even realize it until the next day and will have to use it manually the rest of my trip, and then it goes in for repair.
Venice was it’s usual active self and I was pleased to see so many varieties and quantities of bird there.  There were a lot of anhinga and heron and egret, but there were also some cowbird, osprey, the ever present vultures, and a whole flock of school children.  Good that they learn early.

So here are some images from my morning at Venice.  I think we’ll be visiting back there in a week or so.  Maybe then I can post some photos of the young ones we saw on the nests.
