I just love this time of the year, the sky is clearer and the air is cooler - there are more birds and the trail is still quiet.
My visit to the Bailey Tract and the Sanibel Garden Preserve this morning provided nice surprises.
|Doesn't this Mockingbird look lovely as he is being kissed by the morning light?|
|I guess I could say the same about this Eastern Phoebe, his song was a nice bonus too.|
|Several White Ibis adopted this bare tree, the Osprey decided it was just too crowded and left.|
|I liked how the clouds/humidity started to move in the area - it sure created interesting hues in the vista.|
|A young Bald Eagle perched on the tower - which provided me the answer as to why all of a sudden all the birds left.|
|When the dust settled a few unknowing Eurasian Collared Doves came to roost nearby.|
|On my way back I stumbled upon a House Wren right out in the open, he had the better viewing side.|
|A regal Merlin digesting his dragonfly.|
|You know the ducks are underway when you see a nice crowd of Blue-winged Teal.....I'm ready.|
