My first king rail. This one has been in the same spot for a couple of weeks at the park, just look for the big group of photographers hanging around the corner of Heron Hideout and Marsh Rabbit Run.
Red bellied woodpecker looking at something interesting.
Blue-gray gnatcatcher looking up at the sky. Probably checking out a hawk.
One of the sandhill crane couples had laid an egg in a small nest in the middle of the marsh. Hopefully, in the next week or two there will be a fuzzy brown baby running around.
Great egret flying along Lake Hancock.
This is why helium balloons should be outlawed. Some poor animal is going to choke on that. I would have grabbed it but I wasn't in the mood to step over the alligators.
One of the smaller ones at the park.
Another gorgeous weekend and another trip to Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland. These were taken a couple of weekends ago during one of the first nice warm weekends we had. People were disappointed that the white pelicans had left but there are still so many things to see there. I never did see the sora rail or virginia rail. Or the orange crowned warbler. The list goes on. You will always see lots of alligators there. I'm going back soon to check on the status of the sandhill crane egg.
