myBirds of the World : 2015 updates to this gallery are listed in <a href="http://www.paultavares.smugmug.com/Wildlife/Birds/AU15/"> 2015 Adds and Upgrades to myBirds Gallery</a>. myBirds of the World gallery is a bird photo life list containing one image for each species of wild birds that I have photographed. I update the images whenever I am fortunate enough to capture a better image. The first attempts at a species are often fleeting moments with plenty of room for poor focusing, poor lighting, distracting elements etc. The birds are named and sorted by <a href="http://ebird.org/content/ebird/news/taxonomy-update-for-2014/">ebird 2014 taxonomic order</a>.  ........  <a href="http://paultavares.smugmug.com/Wildlife/MNG/MGA/MmyBirds/MyBW">....Map this Gallery</a>

SAAF Rookery : The St. Augustine Alligator Farm has built a boardwalk through a natural alligator-infested swamp that some of the wading birds use as a rookery. The alligators keep other preditors away. The boardwalk affords amazing views of the birds' courting, mating, nesting and child-rearing behavior.
