No visit to St. Augustine would be complete without spending some time at the amazing Alligator Farm, a misnomer really, since this zoo is so much more than alligators.  To be sure, they have a LOT of alligators, more per square inch than most southern swamps.  I was there to photograph their rookeries.  What a chaotic cancophony of  discordant squawking and activity.  Birds of every description are nesting and raising their chicks in every nook and cranny they can find.  Just when you think it impossible to fit another nest in a tree, some resourceful bird has bagged a spot.  All of this is going on above the alligator infested swamp. Here are a few of the birds that I photographed.
