Some scenes from the Biolob, BlackPoint and Peacock drives. I will be trekking through the hammocks today (February 6) as it is cooler, predicted high of 70. I will be on the lookout for some Florida songbirds today. Theresa's rooster (Coronet Motel) started this morning before sunrise! Do roosters count for a "list"?
|Four turtles and 3 species. Peninsula and Red-Bellied Cooters and a Florida Soft-shelled enjoying some basking.|
|A Bluegill. Gar are also common in the fresh water pools, as are Large-mouthed bass. Ok, the title is birds, so expect the unexpected. It keeps readers slightly off-balance.|
|Cuban Anoles are by far the most common lizard in Florida. They are exotic and quite invasive. This one believes he is a Tyrannosaur.|
|Whaaaaa...? Who DID that?|
|Clarisse.....I tell you, it can work....ok, so we have different feathers....all right you are an Egret, I am this weird looking Spoonbill...but , come ON Clarisse, give me a break.|
|What? Who called us SILLY?|
|Belly Study with Synchronized Dabbling|
|Cutest Little Gull....there are about 50 of them in the Merritt Island NWR and Canaveral National Seashore right now: Bonaparte's Gull.|
|Reflections of the local Bridge foursome-Northern Pintails|
|Synchronized Preening. Synchronicity appears to be a wading and waterfowl trait. Northern Shovelers.|
|This Snowy Egret stood on a water control culvert each day. He had figured out this is where all the food has to come to swim to the next pool!|
|A Florida Scrub Jay stares into the setting sun|
|Even Killdeer appear, acting more like the plovers they are rather than an upland baseball field nesting bird.|
This Reddish Egret's colours are enhanced by the setting sun.
