A scene not a lot of people see here in Key West. What the streets look like early in the morning. Empty. This was right before 9am. We walked across Duval street to go the butterfly house. I wanted to get there early since it was going to be too hot to be in there after lunch. It’s not air-conditioned.
I’m assuming that’s an unwelcome hand drawn red fish on his door.
At lunchtime, more people out on the streets.
Walking around after dinner.
Scenes at Mallory Square in the heart of Key West. People come every night to watch the sun set. It’s a little outdoor party.
Even though it was sunny all day, we missed the sun going down every night we were there. The clouds and late day quick showers would come in.
Pelicans in the mangroves.
Green herons were everywhere.
My first Wurdemann’s Heron (parents are a great blue heron and a white morph great blue heron). They are fairly rare and mostly seen in south Florida. Our sailboat captain pointed him out while we were kayaking around some mangroves about an hour south of Key West. He looks almost like the great blue heron but his head and neck are more white.
It looks like he has something stuck on his eye.
Red bellied woodpeckers were everywhere.
A grackle in the fountain at our hotel.
Our hotel resident green heron.
After looking all week for the white crowned pigeons, I found them in our hotel parking lot the day we were leaving.
Random birds I found in Key West in April.
