A common loon floating around the fishing pier.
The red-eyed horned grebe is back at the fishing pier this winter. There were 4 of them floating around but stayed away from each other and the other 3 were pretty far out.
Common tern fly by.
Pelican going in for a fish.
There’ s always a laughing gull trying to get a freebie from the pelicans.
“I’m outta here.” says the pelican to the gull.
Another sunny morning stop at the Safety Harbor fishing pier. I did not see any manatees this morning but a few dolphins were far out.

Love the pelican shots!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Fantastic pics! Love the horned grebe!
I got a shot of a common loon last week that had the front half of the lower portion of it’s bill broken and bent back. Poor thing likely can not survive.
Really quality images! Wonderful detail!
I love your bird photos.
Beautiful birds and photos, Dina! I love the loon and the grebe. Have a happy week!
Fabulous captures! All great, but the pelicans are my favourite. I need to move to Florida I think!
Beautiful shots. Have a fabulous week!
What a great selection of birds
Great series of action shots of the pelicans!

A great series – I especially like the pelicans in action.
Super shots Dina! Love that Common Loon and the diving Brown Pelicans!
Wow! These are really beautiful images Dina! I’m now following your blog.
Each shot is superb. Love the red eyes of the horned grebe,
Great photos, Dina! Love the capture of the synchronized Pelicans! Horned Grebes have the coolest eyes!
You always have such a selection of birds to choose from and your pictures are wonderful. I long to spend time on the Florida shores … haven’t been down there in 12 years. Someday, maybe … meanwhile I will continue to enjoy your coverage of all of the wonderful wildlife …

I think I’d miss the parrots the most of all the birds in Australia if I ever had to move back to the UK.
Great shots of the plunging pelican and tern.
