This Weeks Photo’s

I had a very busy week and only managed a little birding.  I helped my Parents move and was very happy to see there are Ringed-necked Ducks on the lake behind their new place. I haven’t taken any pictures yet but it looks like it will be a good setup for really nice pictures of that species.  Here are a few pictures I did manage this week … hope you enjoy them!

Roseate Spoonbill ... This guy was so close to the boardwalk that if you didn't know it was there you would walk right by it!

Pied-billed Grebe ... It always amazes me when they manage to swallow what seems like over-sized food!

Purple Swamphen ... This is one of this years babies.  It is just completed the molt into its adult plumage.

Savannah Sparrow ... I was very happy to get this guy this morning.  Sparrows are notoriously difficult to photograph and he actually stood still for more than one of two frames!

I have a nice three-day weekend next Tuesday-Thursday and I think the weather may even cooperate so hopefully I’ll have more blog material.  Thanks for following and God Bless!

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.
