DETAILS:

Every Spring in March the Cattle Egrets begin arriving back in San Miguel de Allende, in the state of Guanajuato high in the central mountains of Mexico. First ten, then fifty, and suddenly there are hundreds filling the air. They are in search of tall trees in which to build nests. There can be as many as 30 nests in some trees, and several chicks in each nest.  As the season progresses the nests must be repaired to prevent the rapidly growing chicks from tumbling to the ground below. This adult was one of many working the pine trees in a small neighborhood park. Everything about this bird feels like something from the distant past. Memories of natural history museum dioramas guided me in the creation of this image.
