Friday The 13th … Louisiana Style!

The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge has a bird walk every Wednesday.  This week they had a very nice assortment of birds with one really nice one (you can see the post of the sightings here).  The Louisiana Waterthrush is a difficult bird to find in South Florida.  It Winters here but because of it’s foraging technique it must be the king of skulkers.

Today I thought I’d invest a little of my day searching for this guy and whatever else might pop up.  I was unexpectedly blessed with the company of Bill K , Linda F , Ruth and Cheryl L.  We saw an even 50 species of birds including this beauty.

I was so excited about this find because I never expected to see one this year.  This was a Life Bird for both Linda and Ruth and a County Bird for me, so much for Friday the 13th!!

I also got pictures of American Robin and Ruby-crowned Kinglet today, which along with the Waterthrush puts my year total at 112. 

I’m finding it a little harder (with work) to keep my Flickr page up to date so it may be a couple of days in between updating the Year Bird set.  Thanks for visiting!

I have worked for the Broward County Sheriff's Office the last 13 years and spend most of my free time birdwatching / naturewatching and photographing the birds and nature that I encounter. I believe God has blessed us with a world that is so absolutely fascinating and wonderful and I'm doing my best to discover and show others all that he has provided us with in nature.
