A few weeks ago I was down in central Florida visiting my 88-year-old mom. We have two traditions: we go shopping and we spend an afternoon at the Circle B Bar Nature Preserve. It’s a beautiful area along the coast of Lake Hancock. While she sits and reads I explore the trails. Sometimes there are sightings of eagles and owls but this day I only come across the usual suspects.
This ibis had just caught lunch.
I stayed quiet on the trail and watched him consume the fish in a few gulps.
Herons were plentiful.
Even found a cute little green heron.
Many flocks of ibis in the marsh areas.
I was excited by this tree of birds. White heron and some cormorants.
As I was heading back I caught this white heron in flight. It was a beautiful sight!
