A bittern hiding in the swamp. Shout out to Peter and Capt. Jake for finding this guy. Don, where were you? You missed out on this one.
A black vulture and a turkey vulture hanging out together.
One of the many “Osprey” trees along Alligator Alley trail.
The baby great blue heron is almost grown up.
The parent was still watching over him.
The baby was still getting excited when the parents came to visit. He was still getting fed by them.
I’m starting to see dragonflies everywhere.
A quick visit to Circle B Bar Reserve in mid-March. I think there were more people than birds on the trails. It’s that time of the year when big groups of bird watchers descend on the park. They move a lot slower and I’m sure they see a lot more birds than I do. Most of the time they are seeing they with binoculars or scopes so I usually can’t get a shot of what they are looking at. I usually try to keep moving. It all started with getting exercise so I try to get in a good long walk on the weekends.Seeing the wildlife is a bonus.
