Carrying a heavy load

Someone was feeding the wildlife peanuts from their car in the parking lot at Chesnut Park recently. Several titmouse came down to the ground to get the peanuts. They were all able to get that big load up in the tree to snack on.

 

Squirrels were taking off with the loot as well.

One titmouse was showing off his prize up in the tree.

Visiting the little ones.

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.

Watching some wild parrots.

As I was walking around the Largo Botanical Gardens thinking it was a slow quiet morning with not much to take pictures of, a flock of black hooded parakeets flew into the trees right over my head. They ignored me as I watched them preening and flirting. After a few minutes, they took off. That was the highlight of the morning.

Not much else at the gardens. I caught an anhinga sticking his head out of the water and the usual titmouse up in the tree.

Still lots of baby moorhens in July.

Summer at the lake

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.
