As I mentioned in the last post I wasn’t able to get time off until the 2nd week of January so I spent the first week photographing species around my local area. I went to Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Green Cay Wetlands and around my home turf. I managed to find a few very nice birds and spend some quality time with my local group.
I visited Wakodahatchee on the 2nd … mainly looking for the Yellow-headed Blackbird that has been Wintering there. I never did manage to see him until almost the end of the month and even then it was a shot of it flying away from me!
The next day I visited Green Cay and saw quite a few species and was able to get a few nice shots.
I stayed close to home on the 4th riding my bike around our large community. The golf course that sits behind our building closed down 6 months ago. They are still mowing the grass and it essentially has become a large park … which equals lots of birds!
I went back to Green Cay on the 5th and once again saw over 50 species. Green Cay is a special place that truly allows you to get close to many species. The birds have become acclimated to the walkers that they mostly ignore the birders and photographers. Many of the best pictures I get are from here.
I’ll post a few more pictures from the first week tomorrow … hopefully. Thanks for stopping by and as always God Bless!!
