At the Venice Area Audubon Rookery, Venice, FL today, birds were flying, preening, nesting, feeding babies. There is an island in a lake, famous for birders and photographers, where many species of herons breed. The area is open to the public and from Jan. thorough April it is staffed by volunteers from the Venice Area Audubon society who have binoculars and spotting scopes for visitors to use and they help identify and give information about the birds. It is a fabulous place for bird photography.
