Some front was supposed to move in - perhaps tomorrow. In the meantime I took a drive through Ding Darling and later visited the Sanibel Lighthouse - it's always nice to be out there - catching sight of my feathered friends and birding buddies.
|This is not a usual sighting along the wildlife drive.|
The Double-crested Cormorant looked like he had swallowed the canary or maybe he's just smiling and happy to see me.
|It always feels special to spot the Night Herons and the little ones are really precious.|
|These guys were hanging out by the Caloosa trail at the end of the wildlife drive.|
|He waived me on as I passed through the exit door.|
|Off I went to the lighthouse and I was treated to a lot of Indigo Buntings, often times sitting in a tree by the dozen.|
|A nice little burst of yellow when the Prairie shows up.|
|This looks like a female Scarlet Tanager. - If I got this one wrong, please don't be shy to share.|
|I love this White-eyed Vireo and it feels especially nice to be able to capture those eyes.|
|The Cowbird - a Shiny female.|
Another great day birding - I hope it holds out for a while longer. My E-Bird lists http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S17921068
