Two very young green herons were waiting for mom to come back with food. They were standing on the boardwalk rail. As soon as they saw mom come into the bushes they hopped back on the branches and headed deep in the bush to get fed.
A common moorhen family. There were at least 6 families along the ponds.
Young grackles and their parents were along the boardwalk.
The usual birds along the boardwalk, a blue jay, an osprey eating a fish on top of one of the office buildings and one of the many anhingas.
A walk around Carillon Park after work in early May.
I saw this lone spoonbill at the office park lake near my work. I noticed that his eye looked a little funny and he was banded. It seemed okay, just sleepy.
Not sure what these baby mallards were trying to eat. Just like a baby, everything goes in the mouth.

Camouflage at it’s best. There’s a little green heron in the middle of the picture. You can barely see him hiding in the reeds near the water.

A few birds at Chesnut Park in mid-September.

Baby moorhens were near the dock with Mom.
The usual deer near my parking spot in the back of the park.

Daddy cardinal was feeding his baby a chewed on green caterpillar. Yum!
A few of the babies at Circle B Bar Reserve in late June. My last trip for the summer was a hot one. I didn’t see as many babies as I had hoped. I was a little late for the early spring babies. Baby hawks and sandhill cranes were already grown up and gone. The above were still good to stumble upon.
