Cardinal wanting a handout.
His mate wanted a handout as well.
A wet brown thrasher hiding in the bushes.
Something yellow. I’m thinking a female common yellowthroat?
A carolina chickadee high up in the trees. I could not get a good shot of this guy.
A male common yellowthroat high up in the trees.
Mom alligator still guarding her nest. I thought it had been close to 2 months since I had seen the alligator nest mound she was resting on. Still no babies on this trip. The area is fenced off so I took this in between. She’s got some nice teeth.
Turtle hanging out near the alligator’s nest.
I saw this beautiful dog walking with his owner and had to take a picture.
Another quiet morning at Chesnut Park. There were a few migrating birds showing up but most stayed high up in the trees. I’m having a hard time seeing many of the fall migrating birds this season. It always rains during the week when the birds stop by for a rest and I can’t get out of work. By the sunny weekend, they all have heading on their way south for the winter.

Those Brown Thrashers are always hiding from me. Great shots. Can’t wait to see the baby alligators.
Stunning birds and beautiful photos.
You must have a great zoom – your photos are wonderful! That turtle better watch out…
Love all the pictures but the bee and that dog are awesome!
Amazing; I loved the diversity of subjects, the detail, and the amazing color you captured.
The Cardinals look very healthy for a couple of beggars! Walking near our ponds this afternoon, I saw a log that I swear looked just like an alligator. (It might be time for me to come back to Florida if I’m hallucinating gators!)
To you it may seem quiet but your photos showed lots of activity.
I love the Cardinals and the Thrasher.. The puppydog is beautiful. Great post, thanks for sharing.. Enjoy your week!
