I took a trip with my parents to Colorado to visit my brother and his family, they took me to a park in Greeley that felt more like I was in Florida somewhere. There was a pond in the park with an island in the middle that had a large Egret and Heron Rookery. here are some pictures of the rookery and a few others from my visit.
