A visit to the Bailey Tract this morning made for a very nice beginning for this day.
|There's a cold front heading our way and even though the Bailey Tract is 1/2 mile from the beach, I could hear the ocean roar....|
|the Pied-billed Grebe is pretty well protected.|
|Around the corner a Mourning Dove's feathers seemed to glisten with gold in the sunshine.|
|A Kestrel was surveying the area for a bite to eat.|
|This Roseate Spoonbill gave me the impression of being filled with kindness - can you see it in its eyes and can you feel the softness too?|
|Once the Roseate disappeared from sight - a Palm Warbler caught my attention - it had me wonder at first because it was hopping while keeping its tail up, not quite a Palm behavior however with closer inspection it was confirmed.|
|Well, this concludes another beautiful visit at the Bailey Tract - looks like the Mottled Ducks were able to find a spot away from those high winds....I think I will too.|
