I did manage to get out this morning before the T-storms started, but boy is it coming down now. If you have never experienced a Florida thunderstorm just imagine being in a car wash … it really does rain that hard here!
I spent a couple of hours at Wakodahatchee this morning. I was super blessed that this mother Boat-tailed Grackle decided to feed one of her kids about 5 feet away from me. This shot is pretty much full frame!
There were a pair of Roseate Spoonbills feeding in a drying up waterhole … which is now probably overflowing, LOL. A Red-winged Blackbird came down and harassed one of them and I managed to grab this shot as it flew by a minute later.
A couple of days ago I posted a pic of a teenage Black-necked Stilt. Today I saw a really, really little one and after I got home I noticed that there were three eggs in the same picture. I hope they are still viable as these guys are so, so cute!
One more baby picture … This young Green Heron chick was just begging me to take its picture. How could I say no to such a cutie.
I had a really nice morning … got some nice shots, saw my good friends Linda, Alan and Lillian and managed to stay dry. Thank you so much for your time visiting and I hope you enjoy a little taste of the bird life that I’m blessed to see every day!!
