One of the first birds I see walking down the trail is a common yellowthroat.
He was checking me out.
A hairy woodpecker flew in.
Then a red bellied woodpecker showed up.
Another bird, I think this is a female yellowthroat.
Down the trail, I see the royal couple looking over their kingdom from a tall cypress tree in the middle of the lake.
Green heron doing his “trying to catch a tiny fish” pose.
Another red bellied woodpecker.
Another downy woodpecker. The trail was full of woodpeckers.
This is the 2nd time I’ve seen black bellied whistling duck babies and again they are far away and into the sun. I waited for half an hour hoping they would swim towards me but they kept getting farther away. This a late family.
It was so good to get back out on the trails at Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland. I had not been since May. It’s way too hot in the summer. There wasn’t a lot of bird activity yet. The winter birds and ducks hadn’t gotten there yet. It was still fun to get out and walk. But, the spider webs were out of control. You really had to watch were you were going. They were across the trails in the trees and along the sides. Soon, meaning maybe mid-November, the weather will break and it won’t be so miserably hot there.

Love all the birds, but the Royal couplet (eagles) are so majestic!
Spectacular captures, Dina. Thank you for sharing
Love the royal pair.

Beautiful collection of bird photos – I particularly love the heron with the spectacular green background.
Great series of bird shots an i liked seeing the young duck of Tex’s duck in that shot
Fantastic shots! Love the green heron so much!
Great observations, like the woodpecker and the heron.
Definitely almost time for these human snowbirds to come back as well! Lovely shots. We have a ton of spiderwebs here in Oregon too. must be a good year for them everywhere.
Definitely about time for these human snowbirds to head back too! Amazing pictures as always — that park is wonderful.
Wow, awesome collection of birds and photos.. The Eagle are one of my favorites.. Have a great week!
Wonderful bird photos, I love the baby ducks, so cute with the blue bills. I like seeing all the woodpeckers too, and the Green Heron caught in its fishing pose is fantastic.
