Loxahatchee

I spent 3 hours birding Loxahatchee NWR this morning.  I heard the King Rail again and once again he failed to show himself.  My good friend and the best birder I know, Carl Edwards has told me that in a month or two they will come right out due to mating urges.

I ran into a small feeding flock of Warblers that included a wonderful Orange-crowned Warbler.  Orange-crowned used to be a nemesis for me but I’ve started to know their call and that has made locating them much easier.  I managed 3 decent pictures but due to computer problems at home was unable to get them ready for the blog.

I’ll do another easy day tomorrow at Green Cay Wetlands.  I On Friday (my Saturday) I’m planning on going out to Lake Okeechobee and the surrounding areas. I’m sure to find something good, so stay tuned!

About sheriffsmith

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.
