Chesnut Park in late February

Usual birds at Chesnut Park including that juvenile bald eagle that cruised by overhead. That hawk was sitting on a swing on the playground but unlucky for him there were no kids there that early in the morning for him to grab!

The titmouse showing off their fun personality.

Gators everywhere in central Florida. I think those two little ones on the bottom were trying keep warm on this chilly morning.

“Here comes a few more white pelicans.”

“Now it’s a party.” Too bad they didn’t land where we could see them.

The black vulture has an all black face.

Turkey vultures have a pink face. The one in the front looks like a juvenile. His face will turn darker pink like the one in the back and his feathers will get darker on his next molt.

A lone pelican swimming in the lake.

At first all I saw was the one white pelican swimming by far out in the lake. Later down the trail, hundreds of them flew overhead. They may have been heading to the other side of the lake but we couldn’t see them from anywhere on the trail. It was a beautiful sunny morning in late November at Circle B Bar Reserve.
