After completing our cleaning in the morning, we drove to a couple of birding spots in the afternoon. I have been to both of these before, the Celery Fields and the Venice Rookery. There weren't many birds at the Celery Fields. This is the nesting season for birds at the Venice Rookery and there were many birds there. The Rookery is a small island in the middle of a small lake. It was interesting watching the birds fly to pick up twigs in their beaks and return and put them on their nest. The birds were not bothered by all of the people watching them. One great egret walked, sauntered, right by me.
