alligator and spoonbill swamp cam

Here at St. Augustine’s Alligator Farm, native herons, egrets, Roseate spoonbills, and wood storks seek the security of this swamp to roost and raise their young. With hundreds of alligators swimming beneath the oak branches, the birds have continued to use this established rookery for generations knowing their young are safe from tree-climbing predators such as raccoons, opossums, and feral cats. The wading birds in the rookery are completely wild and free to come and go as they please.

Throughout the spring, take beautiful snapshots of nesting Roseate spoonbills in their full, colorful breeding plumage as well as their newly hatched chicks.

Alligators will bask on land when sun hits the soil. Alligator feeding demonstrations are at 9am and 12pm PT from the platform.

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park started in the late 1800's as a small exhibition of Florida reptiles. Today it serves both the public and the scientific community with educational shows and exhibits, research, and worldwide conservation efforts.
