Juvenile night heron.
A few late baby pelicans.
Scruffy looking great egret. I think he had been fishing for food.
Pelican fly by.
On my way to see the baby skimmers, I stopped by the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary to visit the injured birds. The sanctuary had opened the nets on the big pelican pen so that all of the baby pelicans that were born there could fly away. I guess anything that's not injured can fly out. I did find a few late baby pelicans there. They must have been the last ones to be born. When I was there in early spring the place was full of white fuzzy baby pelicans. Now they are all grown up and gone. There were also a lot of juvenile night herons hanging around the trees. The wild night herons come there to have their babies.
Stop by the seabird sanctuary if you are ever in the Tampa Bay area. It's free to get in but they really need donations. Seabird Sanctuary link
