I am still working on images from past trips. Gives me something to do during these Covid times. This is a 3 image handheld panorama shot with a m43 Olympus OM D-1 with a 14-140mm lens @ 41mm (Full Frame equivalent ~82mm). Then aligned & blended in Photoshop. Just for fun or maybe boredom, I counted about 131 Egrets plus 5 Roseate Spoonbills & 6 Wood Storks. I probably missed a few and could not see what was on the reverse side of the trees. Below are a few cropped in sections.

Wow. That is amazing. I am used to seeing one or two egrets at a time. It is surprising for me to even think of that many egrets sharing that small a number of trees.
Thanks Mike! That is not counting what birds were on the reverse side! It was like an Egret Motel!
Maybe it was a family reunion.
Thanks Isabel! The sound they made was also amazing!
Looks like Christmas decorations on a tree– a Floridian holiday tree!
Yes! Did not think of that! Too bad there were not more Roseate Spoonbills to add more color!
What an incredible sight 😊
Yes, I was surprised there were that many. Plus I could not count the ones on the other side of the trees!
Wowza, Reed! Awesome to see so many, great shots!
Thanks Donna! Plus they were making quite a bit of noise, which you usually do not notice!
I’m so impressed that you were able to count them all!!☺️
I tried my best and zoomed in to my full large file to count them, but probably missed a few!😊
☺️lol, quite a crowd!
Like jelly beans, you should have held a contest for the person closest to the correct number. The only time I see a number of birds like that is during flock migrations.
Yes! Did not think of a “Jellybean” type contest! Have to keep that in mind for next time!
