Something yellow. I’m thinking a female common yellowthroat?

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.

 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.

  1. 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!)
