Great Egret Incoming

It's not by chance that there is a large Great Egret rookery in the trees that stand within and near the Caiman enclosure of the Georgetown Zoo. The presence of the Caimans offers protection for Egrets against tree-climbing predators. The caimans may eventually get a few snacks from the young birds that fall out their nests.
