Growing up so fast, part 2.

Most cars go flying down the road along the waste plant. I mean, why would a normal person slow down to see what’s hanging out in the ditches along the road. Even if you did slow down as you go past, you might not see that tiny speck of a baby bird on the edge of the water. The black necked stilts having been nesting here for several years. Usually some time in May you start to see the babies following the parents around if you know where to look. I pulled onto the grass and took the above from the car. They are very skittish and as soon as the car door would open, the parents would go crazy. So I just rolled down the window and snapped a few shots before leaving. Anyone going by probably just thinks I’m waiting for a tow truck to come.

There were also baby anhingas in the bushes near the black necked stilts.

A very young juvenile little blue heron in the same spot. He’ll soon turn all blue once he loses his baby white feathers.

An older juvenile spoonbill. He doesn’t have any color in his face yet.

Just a few things I saw leaving work in late May.
