Baby Egrets - Momma took our Food

This photo of a Great White Egret with her baby chicks was taken at the Gatorland Bird Rookery in Orlando, Florida. I was able to observe as the mother Egret brings a fish to her three chicks to let them eat. She looked on as they tried but were still too young to pick through the tough skin on the fish. The mother then took the fish into her mouth to soften through digestion. She then later regurgitated the food back into their mouths to feed them.
