Every day is a new day that is filled with surprises - you just never know what awaits on the trail. It is Monday and the sun is about to rise - time to go birding.
|With a sunrise like this - you can't go wrong.|
The wild flowers are just stunning in the morning light.
|Osprey's way of saying: "Welcome".|
|Along the trail at the Sanibel Garden Preserve, a fellow pointed out these two Black Racers intertwined on the Mangrove branches....|
|love is in the air for those two.|
|Right around the corner I detect a lot of movements and flashes of white light....|
|and there they were....Snowy, Great Egrets, Little Blue and Tricolored all feeding together in a frenzy.|
|Then I noticed some activities around the nesting box - a Great Crested Flycatcher with a juicy bug...he went inside to deliver the goods, in|
|the meantime the partner arrived with a dragonfly....|
|I have a feeling there are a few mouths to feed...|
|"I am so tired" .... the more I give, the more they want....|
|I know the feeling - I had a few of those days myself.|
|Taking a break while taking in the view below..|
|the feeding frenzy continues.|
|Enough down time - there are mouths to feed...chopchop.|
And this goes for the Red-bellied Woodpeckers too. My E-bird List for today.
