The anhingas are always along the trail striking a pose.
All of the usuals: green heron, wood stork, snowy egret and limpkin.
I’ve been seeing the purple gallinules on a regular basis in the same spot. The one with the tan face is a juvenile, not yet fully purple. Probably born last spring.
An uncommon blue headed vireo.
A few flying things on my walk at Circle B Bar Reserve in early February.
I’ve seen lots of green herons lately.
You can always find black crowned night herons near the boardwalk.
Yes, more cute gnatcatchers.
Some type of warbler with a snack
Another type of warbler with a snack.
An uncommon for Tampa blue headed vireo.
My first blue headed vireo. From a distance I thought it was a northern parula and wasn’t going to take the picture. I was thinking it was too far away and dark which it was but was glad I took the shot after all.
Keeper of the sign.
Common yellowthroat hiding in the reeds along the lake.
“Sing, sing a song. “
I thought this was an immature yellow rumped warbler but now I’m not sure.
White eyed vireo.
The usual titmouse looking cute.
This red shoulder hawk was on the wooded trail and watching the blue headed vireo. I think he is still a young one since he didn’t have a lot of color in his head.
This one was sitting out over the lake watching all of the little birds flying around. He may have just been soaking up the sun since it was fairly cool that morning.
A few birds on my walk around Chesnut Park in early January. It was a cool morning (45 degrees when I started) but warmed up fast. I didn’t think I was going to see much but the little birds came out as the sun started peeking out of the clouds.
