I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before but I’d like to say it again … I’m so spoiled having so many great birding locations within a couple of miles of the house. I have been sticking around GC and Wako and probably will until the New Year. I’ve been able to get a little every day and the weather has been fantastic and the birding interesting enough to keep me coming back.
(Clicking on any picture will make it bigger with much more detail)
The last couple of days GC has hosted a very large feeding flock of Wood Storks, Great and Snowy Egrets, Tri-color and Great Blue Herons as well as 4 Roseate Spoonbills … always one of the photographers favorites.
A really cooperative Swamp Sparrow has also been seen at GC the last two days. This is a species we just don’t see much here so it always a nice addition to the daily list of species seen.
Finally I spent a couple of mornings and a couple of afternoons looking for the Yellow-headed Blackbird who has relocated to Wako after a couple of weeks at GC. Wednesday Terri and I stopped about 3:30 PM and after an hour or so he finally put in a 5 minute appearance.
This is definitely my favorite time of year in South Florida and I hope these pictures can bring a little sunshine to your life if you are stuck in the cold and gray! Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!
