Big birds high up in trees.

One of the parents from very far away. Last year this nest lost both babies. I never heard what had happened.  I have heard there are two again this year.

Looks like a couple to me. I think the one on the left is a female. I’ve read they have a brown fleck necklace around the chest.

First time I’ve seen a kestrel at this park.

Cutest critters at the park.

I had not been to Honeymoon Island in a long time. I went to see all of the usuals but it was still too early to be able to see babies yet. If they were there, they were still to small to see from the nest. I found the owl nest but the parent had been sleeping on the nest all morning. I heard here were eagle babies but they were still too small to see from as far away as we could get (over 500 feet is roped off at this park from the trail).  No osprey babies yet as well. This was the end of January so another trip in early March is in the plan. After several days of rain, it was nice to get out and walk in the sun.

  1. ahhh…my last trip to Honeymoon Island, I ended up with an ambulance ride to the hospital after getting dehydrated and frying my brain. (go figure, a 60yo can’t do what he did when he was 20) Now I always hike with my 100oz camelback. Love your pictures.

  2. i learn so much from you! wonderful images dina! i added your site to my blogroll….hope you have a great weekend and maybe i’ll see you soon at the lake!
