Returned to the lake for the first time in a week to check on progress of the Ibis nesting. No sign of hatchings yet. All 3 nesters safely tucked in for another night. Noticed that a little bit of friendly (I expect) sparing goes on between the nesters probably protecting their individual space. Don't know how it will go when all nine hatchlings start to grow into adult sized birds. Look forward to observing...

A tail-ender egret is returning to the lake for the night. The egrets typically leave the lake in the mornings just after sun-up and head-off for the day before returning just on dusk each day.
