Egret Apartment Building


It's nesting season for the cattle egrets and they are building their nests in the casuarina and eucalyptus trees that line the canals in the country...and in the trees along the perimeter of the Giza Zoo, much to the dismay of those who must park cars under them. The "I'm coming home with dinner, honey." calls and the squabbles of neighbours make for good entertainment for bird watchers. Soon there will be spikey white balls of fluff in the nests demanding attention too.
