The first thing I saw when I got to the boardwalk was a swallow-tail kite flying by. I heard they were nesting across the lake. I would need a canoe to even get remotely close.
A great blue heron flyby.
Juvenile night heron along the boardwalk.
A white eyed vireo.
I thought this was a brown thrasher but the grey eyes are throwing me off. Brown thrashers have orange eyes. Any ideas?
The swamp was full of these flowers. They were growing in the shade.
Built in Christmas ornaments on this fir tree.
Is that a yawn?
He was on the side of the road. I pulled over and took these pictures before leaving.
I hadn’t been to Lettuce Lake Park in months. The lake was full and the swamp under the boardwalk was full of water. I saw very few wading birds. I heard a lot of northern parulas all over the park but they were all high up in the trees. No sign of the barred owls this trip. I’ll keep looking.
