Are these eagles ever gonna go back up north? I still see them hanging around. Maybe they stay here all year round.
Limpkin flying in with a snack.
An adult limpkin on the left with a juvenile. Looks like she’s going to feed him.
My only glimpse of the baby red shoulder hawk. I got this when I first got to the nest. After a few seconds, he laid down on the nest and took a nap. There are two babies on the nest but I could only see one. We waiting around for a while for them to wake back up. I finally got hungry and left.
A purple gallinule on the trail! She was stretching out. All of a sudden she hunched over and just stayed there. I kept thinking “What is she doing?”
All of a sudden another one walks up and climbs on top of her. I didn’t even see him hiding in the reeds.
I guess we’ll have baby gallinules soon.
Seconds later he climbed off and walked away. I hope she at least got a stick. Spoonbills bring their mates a stick after they mate to start the nest.
An early morning Saturday hike around Circle B Bar Reserve. I was hoping to see the bobolinks, fulvous whistling ducks and baby turkeys while I was there. No luck on the last two but I did see 100’s of bobolinks fly by quickly in a flash across the trail.
