Pigeon peeking out at me from the railing.
Despite their bad rap, they are beautiful birds. They have a green sheen to their feathers. And the red eyes and pink feet are quite fashionable.
This must be a hybrid pigeon of some sort. He was hanging out with the other pigeons. I couldn’t find anything like him in my Stokes Birding Guide.
“Hey, who ate all the fries?” said the crow.
Cormorant on the pole.
The only fish I saw being caught that afternoon. After walking the entire span of the south Sunshine Skyway fishing pier, I finally see someone catch a fish. It seemed to be a quiet day. Most people were sitting in their chairs sleeping. I think this is a flounder.
I had a couple of hours on a recent weekend to kill and wanted to get out and walk. I wanted to go somewhere that had a good sea breeze so I headed to the south fishing pier that used to be the old Sunshine Skyway Bridge. I parked at the entrance and spent almost two hours walking the pier. I was a little disappointed because I saw zero sharks, dolphins or manatees. All of which I saw on my last walk there last September. Maybe it’s the time of the year. The birds were pretty scarce as well. At least I got a good walk in.
