This is a 4 footer who was warming up last Jan
when I first discovered the Park & Ibis Rookery behind the Palm Beach Solid Waste Treatment Plant.
It's only accessible till the end of January when the rookery starts getting really active.

Hope to be taking NEW WILD GATOR CLOSE-UPS
this weekend as I head south after Diner tonight.

Hope to be back on line by Friday.
