Anhingas are like clowns. They have the funniest personalities, that is when they are not half asleep drying their wings out. They sway their head back and forth and honk when you walk by. The males have a black neck and the females have a brown or beige neck. I think that last one was yawning.
Egrets along the trail. A snowy, cattle and a great egret in the last one above.
Other birds along the trail at Circle B Bar Reserve in early January were a limpkin looking for food, a grebe doing his yoga stretch, a glossy ibis glowing in the sun and a hawk looking out over his domain.
And one of the hundreds of blue-gray gnatcatchers.
This little moorhen was walking along the trail with someone.

Visiting my titmouse friends at Chesnut Park.
Saw several yellow throated warblers including one that landed on the boardwalk.
A young northern parula.
Black capped chickadees are common here during migration.
The usual birds were out on the dock, a limpkin and green heron.

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.
I finally got some shots of the painted buntings that have hanging around the nature center at Circle B Bar Reserve.
A lady painted bunting was also present.
A juvenile indigo bunting was eating on the ground.
Other usual birds were the gnatcatcher and the yellow rumped warbler.
Sandhill cranes were around, digging in the dirt for bugs.
Lots of birds flying around.
Across the lake, an eagle sits in a bald cypress tree.
Just a few pretty things at Circle B Bar Reserve in mid-March.

A limpkin and his reflection trying to find snails.
A young red shoulder hawk landed on the boardwalk right in front of me. He sat there for a while looking around until someone walked up to him from the other side of the boardwalk and off he went.
Another adult red shoulder hawk up in a tree.
A common yellowthroat showing off.
A muscovy duck train in the parking lot.
Female belted kingfisher (Males do not have the brown stripe across the chest).
Female red bellied woodpecker (Males have full red on his head).
Male common yellowthroat (Female does not have the black mask).
Crazy green heron.
Female ruby throated hummingbird (Males have a bright red stripe across the chin).
A very young white crowned sparrow (a fairly rare one here).
A young red shoulder hawk (very common around here).
All taken on a recent visit to Circle B Bar Reserve.
The parks are full of white eyed vireos and phoebes right now.
“Common” yellowthroats are pretty common as well.
Doves get no respect even though they have pretty pink feet.
Limpkin eating a snail.
These are actually pretty cool bees, although I wouldn’t want to disturb that nest.
Gators and lizards.
Muhly grass in bloom.
