The tiniest bird I saw that day. A blue-gray gnatcatcher looking up.
Not too much bigger is the eastern phoebe. You can usually find them hanging out at the intersection of Marsh Rabbit Run and Heron Hideout.
A little bit bigger, there’s been a kingfisher hanging out in the same corner as the phoebe.
This early fall, there’s been a purple gallinule family hanging out in the same corner as well.
Getting bigger, I found these juvenile limpkins hiding in the marsh. They still have some baby fuzz on them.
A parent was close by watching me.
The American bitterns are back. This one was hiding in the marsh on Wading Bird Way. Another photog with a keen eye found him.
Taken right into the sun, the anhinga was flipping his fish.
“I’m the biggest one here.” says the turkey vulture showing off.
“Bye, bye” says the ducks as they take off after an eagle flew over them.
Lots of the same ole thing at Circle B Bar Reserve in mid-November.

Fantastic bird captures.
Beautiful birds! Take good care of them until they can return to my part of the world in the spring.
The one flipping its catch, it is so perfect!
Wonderful photos. Birds can be difficult to capture & these photos are stunning. Really enjoyed looking through these. Blessings to you & have a great week!
Great shot of the hard to get kingfisher and I always love seeing the patented Anhinga ‘fish flip’.
Beautiful birds and a great series of photos. I especially like the anhinga in action! The anhinga I photographed this week was just sitting still.
What an amazing series of shots!
Sweet sweet images!!!! I love all your birds on these shots….some of them would be lifers for me!!! And to get a shot of the Kingfisher and Gnatcatcher in that light is most excellent!
Wonderful bird shots! I don’t have a near habitat to see them so appreciate yours. The Kingfisher is so cute, and the baby Limpkins. Such a difficult shot to get the Anhinga flipping the fish!
Great shots, well done!
Wonderful images Dina…
The gnatcatcher, phoebe, and juvenile limpkins are adorable, but the anhinga photo is a great catch, Dina.
Dina, awesome variety of birds and wonderful photos,
What a great variety of birds. That gnatcatcher is so sweet!
Very nice series of photos! It’s easy to take the abundance of birds at the Circle B for granted, until you visit somewhere else! Superb images, Dina.
Brilliant post, got to love the action shot of the fisherman……. love it
Dina, you are beyond amazing! I always think your pictures should be submitted to some contest or published… they are so much better than many I see … and the fish flip one definitely definitely should be .
