Green heron doing his “I’m a statue” imitation.
Pied grebes are everywhere. This one did not seem very skittish. He stayed close to the trail as we walked by.
Blue-gray gnatcatchers were all over the trails.
Typical great blue heron in the moss shot.
The only alligator I saw that morning.
I noticed this big bee hive up in the trees.
Mid-December was pretty quiet. I walked the trails at Circle B Bar Reserve on a cloudy windy morning. Most of December started out cloudy or foggy in the mornings. Same old stuff on the trails. I was hoping to spot a painted bunting or bobcat but still no luck. Even the alligator sightings were disappointing. The white pelicans were gone but I did see a few flying overhead in the distance. Maybe my luck will turn around in the new year and I’ll finally see that bobcat.
