The usual things to see at Possum Branch Preserve.
Alligators are also usual things there. That alligator in the first one thinks that grass is hiding him. That alligator coming up behind him knew he was there.
There were no spring migrating birds feeding in the mulberry tree but the woodpecker was getting his fill.
This female red winged blackbird had 2 snacks, a caterpillar and a dragonfly.
Another usual suspect here is a brown thrasher.
Not a usual suspect in the mulberry trees right before I left. A small flock of cedar waxwings landed on the back side of the tree. I’ve seen them here once before several years ago. It was hard to get shots of them on the back side of the tree that backs up to the pond full of gators. Standing under the tree I could see several at the top with their faces covered in berry juice. They are such an elegant bird, always so clean. I felt like I should have offered them a napkin but I left them to their mulberry buffet.
