Lots of the usual birds at Lettuce Lake Park in late July. The first shot is a very young parula and the 2nd is a shot of the young parula being fed by the parent. The last shot is of a very young red bellied woodpecker waiting for the parent to give him a bug.
The usual titmouse and I caught a glimpse of a brown thrasher high up in a tree.
Things along the boardwalk.
There’s water somewhere in that lake. These were taken before the rainy season and the plants had taken over the lake.
I still haven’t seen any news on this great blue heron nest. A while ago there was a great blue heron always sitting on the nest for weeks. Then it was abandoned. Weeks later when I was there, I saw this great blue heron looking around. So are they trying again? They’ve had babies in this nest for several years now.
I found the limpkin family again on this trip but they were further away from the trail. The babies were growing up so fast. They now look like the parent, only smaller.
Northern Parulas were all along the trail but they stayed high up in the trees.
A green heron prowling around in the muck.
A glossy ibis doing the same thing.
The dragonflies were out.
A few crawling critters were out on the trail.
Just a few things I saw on my walk in mid-March at Circle B Bar Reserve.
