Citadel Mall Bird Sanctuary

It’s ironic that a small pond near a bustling mall, of all places, would be such a popular hangout for these shy creatures! But if you’ve ever been to a late afternoon movie at the Citadel IMAX theater, you’ve likely noticed the thousands of birds that swoop and squabble over this roosting place for the night.

After catching a matinee the other day, I stopped to enjoy this wildlife show of a different nature. These are mostly cormorants, great herons, and white ibis. But plenty of other species abound. All were shot hand-held with a Nikon D300 + Nikkor 200-400VR combo. Enjoy!
