Glorious Day 2

Green Cay Wetlands ... another fabulous day!!

The incredible weather continued today in South Florida.  I spent a couple of hours at Green Cay Wetlands.  I saw a total of 54 species today including both American and Least Bitterns.

Painted Bunting

This Painted Bunting is not the most colorful I’ve seen but I loved the over the shoulder look he provided me.  There were at least a dozen of these guys around between all the feeders.

American Bittern ... not very shy this year.

The American Bitterns have been more cooperative this year than I’ve ever seen.  I walked by this guy two different times and he hadn’t budged.  The light was better the second time so I immortalized him with a picture!

Yesterday I had talked a little about the different molt phases of Little Blue Heron and White Ibis.

Little Blue Heron ... tweener!

Heres a Little Blue Heron about half way to becoming an adult …

White Ibis ... youngster

and an almost White Ibis!

It seems I made a tactical error by not going to the beach today.  Last week there was a report of 3 Plover Species at the Lake Worth Pier.  I have been there 3 times since and seen squat but it seems today someone posted on the TAS birdboard the they saw them all plus some other goodies.  I guess it’s back to the beach tomorrow!!!

Thank you all so much for visiting and all the kind comments.
