Just In Case

Just in case you thought I have completely stopped birding in Palm Beach County let me assure you that while I have slowed down some this Summer I still have managed to get out a couple of times a week.  I really had not taken the memory card out of my camera for a month or so, so imagine my surprise when I found quite a few usable images!  90% of these shots are from Green Cay Wetlands, my home patch, with a few coming from the sod fields in Western Palm Beach County.  I’ll let the pictures pretty much speak for themselves today!!

White-winged Dove ... We tend to ignore Doves in general but this guy sure is stunning!

I hope that wasn’t picture over-load!  I still have a few more posts from California that I will get to and now that migration is ramping up I will be in the field a little more and will keep you posted of the going ons in Palm Beach County!

Thank you so much for the visit!!!
