Birds spotted at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens

Today's post is another one from Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. When we visited, we decided to purchase the full package and take all the available tours. Unfortunately, the boat tour of the rice fields was not available during the time we visited, but we did take the garden tour (required for admission), Nature Train Tour, From Slavery to Freedom: The Magnolia Cabin Project Tour, the House Tour and the Swamp Tour.

While taking these various tours, we spotted many amazing birds. Here are a few flying beauties we saw:

This great egret was spotted as we were leaving the swamp tour and heading into the woods.

Several ducks were swimming in the swamp, the gators didn't seem to bother them.

This blue heron appeared to be a bit camera shy. We were wandering around the gardens and spotted this one near where the rice fields used to be.

Took this one from the car window on the way out
