Different herons down the trail, A great blue, tricolored, a night heron and then another tricolored almost swimming.
Turtle on the trail.
Why do always get the butt shot pose? I almost never see these guys walking around and when I do they have their back to me. Usually I just see the below, snoozing and cruising.
All along the trail.
Trees and flowers along the trail.
This beautiful young mute swan was taking a bath at Lake Morton in late November.
The white ducks are cute but aggressive, looking for a handout.
One of the black necked swans at the lake.
A wood duck and a ring billed duck couple.
The cypress trees were turning orange.
One of my favorite trees at Circle B Bar Reserve. A bald cypress in the middle of the lake. It looks like a great blue heron is nesting on it.
Some of the usual birds along the trail.
A few not so common ones, a Wilson’s snipe and a chipping sparrow.
Purple gallinules were all along the trail.
A few crawling critters.
Across the lake, I could just make out the bald eagles sitting on the right side of the tree. You can also see one of the baby’s brown head sticking up off the nest.
A glossy ibis showing off his colors in the sun.
The usual birds along the trail.
Nothing new on my trip to Circle B Bar Reserve in late April. Just a long beautiful walk on a Saturday morning before the heat sets in.
