The last three days have been fantastic. The weather has been wonderful for birding and I have had been successful in tracking down a few more really good birds for the June challenge.
The sun was shining brightly by the time I got up to the Inlet and the first thing I noticed was that there were a lot of Pelicans feeding in real close to shore. There were tons of bait fish in the shallow water and I was hoping they would bring in some other hungry friends. Wow, not a half an hour after I got there this beautiful Little Blue Heron in nice breeding plumage.
The whole weekend has been filled with nice species. I’ve added all these nice birds to the June Challenge … Black Skimmer, Gull-billed Tern, Fulvous Whistling Duck and Greater Yellowlegs . I think these 4 puts me at 98 bird species photographed in the month of June. I’m going to go back and see if I missed one to try to get 100 … but I usually do a good job of tracking what I’ve shot.
Here’s a rundown of the other new birds for June … Click on any picture anywhere on the blog for a larger … sharper pic!
There are many more nice pictures from this weekend that I will show tomorrow. We were really blessed with great weather these last days of the month and I thank God I was able to take advantage of it.
Thank you so much for visiting and if you are new to the blog you can view all 193 species of birds I’ve photographed in Palm Beach County this year at my Flickr site here.
