This little titmouse seemed to be showing me his snack.
So many little birds at Lettuce Lake Park in late March including that little spotted Hermit thrush in the last 2 pictures (or so I was told by the bird experts at the park that morning). This was a first sighting of a hermit for me.
A little blue heron posing for me.
Taken directly into the sun, this red shoulder hawk was right over my head on the boardwalk.
Lots of squirrels but that bottom looks a little rough.
Lots of little birds but nothing new.
Red shoulder hawks hiding along the trails.
Eagles flying far away across the lake. Both an adult and a juvenile.
Found these two ducks at a quiet end of a pond. I’m thinking they are pets that got dumped here. Someone left food in a small plastic container. I just hope they know enough to stay away from the gators.
All of the above look almost alike. There are a few differences in some of them. One has a black bill while the others have orange bills. I was told that morning at Fort Desoto by “bird experts” that these were flycatchers. They could be eastern woodpee or a least flycatcher. They all looked like eastern phoebes to me.
There were a few redstarts in the trees. I’m not sure why they call them redstarts. They don’t have any red in them, only yellow and orange.
I think this is a Tennessee warbler.
A new bird for me, a Swainson’s Thrush. He was high up in the trees and I had to brighten up this one.
This looks like a young mockingbird.
A usual sight during migration, a black and white warbler.
Next year I’m going to take the time to take notes on what these birds are. I heard several times different people calling birds different things. I usually come home and look everything up but they are all starting to look the same. Please correct me if any of these are wrong.
