A starling peeking out of what was probably a former woodpecker nest.
Thanks to Ken at Rosyfinch Ramblings for the ID on the above Orange crowned warbler. A first for me.
Little birds at Hammock Park.
A small wood stork party at Possum Branch Preserve.
Typical great egret shot but I noticed after I cropped it up that he’s missing part of his upper beak.
I started out at Hammock Park, a small park in Dunedin that I had not been before. After walking around for an hour and seeing very little, I left there and stopped at Possum Branch Preserve for a walk before heading home.
Nice to have a nice variety of wildlife so near to home! The Organe-crowned Warbler has been scarce down here in our local SE Florida wetlands.Indeed, yesterday I had a “zero warbler” morning walk. .
Wonderful photos! That egret has definitely been in the wars with something or someone!
Your photos are always so special! So glad to have you visit and share at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2018/04/titanic-movie-costumes-on-display-at.html
I wonder how that egret survives with such a damaged beak.
Beautiful pics. I have an orange crowned warbler visit my feeders for a couple of months. Sadly I haven’t seen him for a while now.
All of these pics are wonderful, but I especially like the wood storks.
Oh, sad about the missing upper beak. I have heard of veterinarians performing amazing surgery to repair such beaks, but first you have to catch the egret!
Beautiful photos as always, Dina.

Great photos! Hoping the Egret will still be able to catch and eat his food.
Lovely photo of the female Red-winged Blackbird! I don’t see many of them
All I can say is wow to the painted male bunting! So so pretty!
