American White Ibises, a Great Egret, a pair of Lesser Yellowlegs and a songbird (a female Red-winged Blackbird?) were all busily trying to find their meal at the rapidly shrinking large rainfall retention pond on Friday, August 1, 2014. As you can see, this, the largest of the ponds in this development, is drying up quickly.
The one adult Ibis , as well as that brown-colored juvenile Ibis, had been at this pond all week. The Yellowlegs had just arrived on Friday as far as I can tell. All of these birds seemed to be in search of insects as there are no fish at the pond. Perhaps there also were some small tadpoles in the water there. I was glad to have seen all these big birds here in recent days! Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photograph. As ever, I hope you enjoy seeing these pictures.
