Great Egret chicks
 

There were also quite a few Great Egret chicks around. Two in particular were on a nest really close to the main boardwalk. Whilst the parents were away getting food,  I was able to get a few close up shots of these youngsters.

The parents were always close at hand, allowing some nice family shots as well.

I particularly like this shot and the eye contact between the adult and its chick as it feeds.
