Right when I got to Largo Nature Preserve and was getting out of the car this swallow tail kite flew so close to me that I cut him off. He flew over some trees and I couldn’t find him again.
The usual birds were there. A cattle egret, limpkin and a night heron.
The usual Florida critters were also there.
I did a quick lap around the paved trail and saw this almost grown baby screech owl peaking out of the hole in the tree. I looked for a while for the parent in the area but couldn’t find one. Those tiny owls are good at hiding. I did not stick around to find out if the parent came in to feed the baby but I’m sure it did at some point.
A red bellied woodpecker was popping in and out of this hole but we were all interested in the flickers nesting in the tree next door. More on that to come.
The ‘usual’ are not always just routine to see. Thanks for sharing your wonderful shots.
I’m so happy to see your link at My Corner of the World this week!
