Bailey Tract visit - From Green Heron to Orchard Oriole

I was due for an early visit to the Bailey Tract and this time of the year can be really peaceful there, what's not to love! Come and visit with me.....
Oh Look! We have a greeter today.....

a Green Heron - "Good Morning to you!".

A young Little Blue was slowly waking up.

A silent Great-crested Flycatcher was observing me.

One of the greeter's relative was nearby too.

Oh!, Look how much the Common Gallinule have grown.

And what do we have here?

If you guessed an immature Black-crowned Night Heron, then you win the early bird prize.

The sun is slowly rising and the true colors are coming up - a Red-shouldered Hawk drying up from his morning bath.

A young Red-bellied Woodpecker exploring all that his world has to offer.

The Tricolored Heron is always one to admire.

A Brown Anole that lost its tail to a predator,

this one sports his entire tail.

This little turtle was quite far away - I don't have enough clue to properly identify - If you know, do pipe in.

A Kingbird - with a white tail tip it would indicate an Eastern Kingbird.

And what a nice surprise! An Orchard Oriole - welcome back!
