These are the birds I’ve seen and photographed in the last two days. Some of them on the way to town, and some of them while going fishing today. I just love these wading birds especially. Enjoy!
A male pelican posing for me
A snowy egret, not afraid of the boat at all
A female pelican posing for me, also totally unafraid
A great egret who was definitely afraid of us
A little blue heron too busy eating to worry about me
A great blue heron about to get him a bite of lunch, not worried in the least
I nearly fell out of the boat getting my camera for this one. This is a Louisiana heron (now called tri-colored heron). Isn’t it gorgeous? They are not as common as the other two.
My 11 year old took this one from the car. He loves killdeer and did a great job
This is a kingfisher, which my son also took.
And no birding tour would be complete without at lest one raptor. He took this one while the car was moving.
I know this isn’t a bird. It’s a redfish and I caught 2 like this today, cleaned them, and grilled them on the skin. They were delicious!
