Schedule of Events

The Rookery will be fully involved with the processes of breeding new generations of the various species of the birds that return there annually.

The nest building, egg laying, egg incubating, and with some species egg hatching will be in full swing and offer plenty of opportunities for both action and static shooting of the activities.


Suggested lens choices are mid-range zooms 24-70, 70-200 with longer reach 100-400 and 200-500 along with similar size primes will cover most shooting opportunities. Conditions there usually will be improved with polarizer use.

Tripod use is allowed. With the larger zooms and primes they may be necessary. A note on their use, additional safety elements have been added to the fencing in the boardwalk area. Cable has been strung through the fence posts to prevent accidental equipment drops into the gator swamp. The cables should not materially affect shooting.

Other Tips

With the ability to leave and return, we can shoot under the different morning and late afternoon lighting opportunities.
