Yes, another purple gallinule picture. I’ve seen more this past couple of months than in the entire 5 years I’ve been looking for birds. Although, on my most recent trip to Circle B Bar Reserve, I didn’t see any so they may be gone for the summer.
Female wood duck on a tree. This was the first time I’ve seen wood ducks at this park.
The male was watching us pretty closely.
She was pretty. They were hopping from tree to tree. Maybe this is how they flirt.
The green heron looked all dressed up with those orange legs.
The wilson’s snipe was still hanging around. Pam found him. We were looking closely in the marsh at something else. I think it was an alligator and she says “What is that?”
Palm warbler with pollen all over his beak.
Savannah sparrows can usually be found at the intersection of Marsh Rabbit Run trail and Heron Hideout trail.
This looked too yummy to pass up. I asked him if he needed any tartar sauce.
Another one with lunch landed on a branch close by.
Most of the winter birds and ducks had already left for up north. Spring migration of the songbirds hadn’t really started yet so it was a slow morning at Circle B Bar Reserve. Just the usuals there with the exception of the wood duck couple. They became celebrity visitors there real fast.
