You can spend a whole morning photographing birds at Lust Road. Yesterday’s highlights included Ash-throated Flycatcher and Western Kingbird
Photographic highlights of the Lakeland Christmas Bird Count, Outfall Wetlands property. Best bird was Northern Waterthrush.
A fall walk at Orlando Wetlands Park gave me a chance to photograph our returning winter birds
I stopped at PEAR Park last weekend for a birding scouting trip. Sparrows and kestrels and a fog bow, oh my!
Lust Road turned out to be great for uncommon birds, including Grasshopper Sparrow, Ash-throated Flycatcher, and Blue Grosbeak
My best morning of photography in a long time – at Viera Wetlands! Caracara, spoonies, hoodies, pelicans, oh my!
Foggy mornings can still be good for photography at Circle B, especially when the birds cooperate with you!
A Hooded Merganser and Bufflehead were the Odd Couple at the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive
The winter birds are coming back to Orlando Wetlands Park. We had a Painted Bunting, American Bittern, and a camera-shy Merlin
Winter birds are coming back to the Circle B Bar Reserve. Our quick trip yielded Eastern Phoebes, Common Yellowthroats, and Palm Warblers.
The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive was more peaceful than the malls on this Black Friday! Little birds all over posed for my camera
I helped survey the Lake Hancock Outfall Wetlands for the 2014 Lakeland Christmas Bird Count. Rarities included avocets, stilts, Snail Kites
The winter birds are returning to the Circle B Bar Reserve! My dad and I had a great walk yesterday morning. We saw our first-of-fall Eastern Phoebes, Gray Catbirds, Marsh Wrens, and a surprise flock of American White Pelicans flying over the marsh. It was fun to welcome our birdy friends back to the Sunshine […]
Dyeyo and I spent a nice morning at the Circle B Bar Reserve a few days ago. I can’t believe our Thanksgiving Week is almost over. It feels like it’s lasted only one day! The marsh continues to be covered in pretty yellow flowers, called Burr Marigolds. I had only taken the Beast, so Dyeyo […]
I spent Sunday morning with The Beast at the Circle B Bar Reserve. It was hard to decide whether to head out to the marsh to catch the Bald Eagles flying with nesting material, or head to the lake to see the bobcat. The cloudless skies and great morning light made me decide on the […]
Dyeyo and I continued our bird-watching safari. After we saw the Snow Bunting in Palm Coast, we went to Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Rufuge, where several Snow Geese have been reported there over the last week or so. They were there! They usually don’t come to Florida. There was a mix of white morph adults […]
I’ve been going to the Circle B Bar Reserve at least once a week since June, and plenty of times before that, and I’ve never seen a River Otter. Dyeyo’s seen them plenty of times. Well, I finally got to see one today! There were otters running up and down Marsh Rabbit Run all morning. […]
I spent my off-Friday morning at the Circle B Bar Reserve. I heard my first American Goldfinch of the season! I never saw it, but the call is unmistakable. Heron Hideout is definitely a great place to be at sunrise these days. The water levels in the marsh are extremely low, so the birds congregate […]
Hundreds of White Ibis took to the air this morning over the Circle B Bar Reserve. The cold and the wind kept most of the birds under cover, but the White Ibises seemed to know how to navigate despite the gusts. On Heron Hideout, the marsh on the left is completely dry, and it seems […]
Apparently the “Water, Wings, and Wild Things” event yesterday spooked a lot of the birds at the Circle B Bar Reserve…but the wrens stuck around and celebrated Halloween with us! The marshes were fairly quiet this morning, but there were plenty of little bids for patient photographers… We started off walking to the far end […]
