Always a sad sight to see. The cormorant took off flying towards Egmont Key island. Hopefully, that will come loose off his beak as some point.
“Wait, let me fix my hair before you take the picture.”
Another sad sight, a pelican with fishing stuff attached to his wing. He was diving pretty far off the pier. He seemed to be catching fish with no problem.
When he took off, I realized the fishing line was hooked between his beak and leg. The problem with this is if he lands on a mangrove bush, it could get tangled up and he would not be able to fly off.
A great egret lands on the roof of the rain shelter and spooks the snowy egrets.
They were waiting for the guy below to leave his bait bucket unattended.
Which he eventually did for a few minutes. His back turned while fishing, the birds were seeing who was brave enough to grab the first fish out of the bucket. I told the guy he needed to cover his fish.
Something going on far out in the water.
Another beautiful walk on the pier at Fort Desoto.
