Cool summer morning of nature phography at LAWD. Baby Pied-billed Grebes, a cooperative Green Heron, and lots of Least Bitterns
My dad and I spotted our first-of-fall Belted Kingfisher at the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive on July 16. Fall migration is underway!
More summer photography from the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive. Lots of juveniles-Pied-billed Grebe, Green Heron, Least Bittern, Purple Martins
Another fun morning of photography at Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive (LAWD) – Green Herons, Common Gallinule, Least Bittern, White-winged Dove
July 4th bird photography at Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive: Osprey with Fish, yawning Least Bittern, swallows, and Swallow-tailed Kites!
I kicked off my July 4 weekend with a Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive visit and photographed all sorts of fun birds
Another fun morning of bird photography at Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, where my eyes were in the skies with flight shots galore!
The photographer-cuckoos met the bird-cuckoo at Lake Apopka. We also saw Pied-billed Grebe babies, Fork-tailed Flycatcher, and our lifer Mississippi Kite! :)
A beautiful sunrise was just the start of a great morning of photography at Lake Apopka. Bitterns and grebes, oh my!
Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive continues to yield great birds, including American White Pelicans and Red-breasted Merganser – in June!
Least Bitterns are usually secretive, but apparently they like to come out on rainy days! Photos taken at Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive
A summer sunrise at Orlando Wetlands with the birds…Pileated Woodpecker, baby Purple Gallinules, some Least Bitterns, and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks!
It’s been quite a while since I last visited Orlando Wetlands Park, so when my friend Michael Libbe suggested that we go there for sunrise, I was excited to go back. Summer days at Orlando Wetlands Park are very hot, but there was a nice breeze to keep us comfortable. We arrived a good half […]
I went to Viera Wetlands on Saturday morning. After all the rain on Friday, I wasn’t optimistic about the light level (I actually didn’t decide to make the drive until Saturday morning at 5am!) There was virtually no sun till the very end of the morning, but the babies were cute and I was relatively pleased with […]
Dyeyo and I went to Viera Wetlands this morning with hopes of finding some of the babies reported on Birdbrains, and maybe the Fulvous Whistling Duck that was photographed there yesterday. It’s summer, though, and I wasn’t optimistic that we’d find much, especially since we don’t get to Viera often and so are not as familiar with the area. […]
Dyeyo and I spent a nice Father’s Day morning with Herman at his rookery in Polk County. That’s always such a fun place to go. Herman’s little portable boat is awesome for floating between the islands and observing the birds. We started the morning with a Least Bittern – what a way to start the […]
Dyeyo and I couldn’t take it anymore. People on the Birdbrains mailing list have been going on and on this week about all the birds at Viera Wetlands. So we drove out there this morning to see all the birds. It was a beautiful sunny, slightly breezy morning, and it was awesome to be outside […]
Dyeyo and I enjoyed our hike around the Circle B Bar Reserve again this morning. We saw our usual assortment of birds and babies, plus a few surprises… The Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks continue to make Circle B their summer home. Their calls can be heard all over the marshes at all hours of the morning. […]
It was very hot but very fun to be back at the Circle B Bar Reserve this morning. Dyeyo and I took a nice long hike and saw some neat birds. I saw my first Eastern Meadowlark! I’ll wait until I have a better picture to post one, though. When we first arrived, we saw […]
