Safari Park update

Safari Park update
By – 5:46 pm
Russ and I visited Safari Park this afternoon, hoping to find the returning Wood Stork reported this morning. We were not successful. The report said it was on the south pond which I think must be viewed from the tram. Being a Sunday afternoon, the long line discouraged us from trying that option.The breeding colony at the lower lagoon is heating up. White-faced Ibis had nests scattered along every path down there. Either there are more of them, or they are spreading out more. I saw one egg set with three eggs. Most of the ibis are still squabbling over location and are very vocal. The snowy egrets have mostly not settled down either – lots of territorial disputes occurring. We saw only a few cattle egrets, and only one that was occupying a nest, so they have a long way to go.We saw zero vultures – there was no evening fly-in, at least before 5pm. We saw no zone-tailed hawks.
