Songbirds at Lake Apopka

Female Boat-tailed Grackle

A pair of Boat-tailed Grackles, a couple of male Red-winged Blackbirds, a Yellow-rumped Warbler, and a male Northern Cardinal were all spotted at the North Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive on the shores of Lake Apopka, in Apopka, Florida on Sunday, March 3, 2019.  I did not see many songbirds but saw a lot of wading birds and Osprey on the trip to this large lake.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

More Paynes Prairie Birds (and an Alligator)

DSC_1848 The La Chua Trail birds are fabulous!  I so enjoyed seeing Great Egrets, Great Blue and Tri-colored Herons, Common Cormorants, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Anhingas; White Ibises, Snowy Egrets, Common Gallinules, and of course, the other animals – alligators and turtles.

I did not see any of the Wild Horses or Bison which once in awhile can be seen from this trail.  I photographed these birds, gator, and trail scenes on March 12, 2015 at Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, near Gainesville, Fl.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  Enjoy!

Songbirds & Hawks Don’t Mix

Yellow-rumped Warbler

Yellow-rumped Warbler

I think having two, and perhaps three, hawks  now patrolling the trees here on my street, has a lot to do with my not having seen many songbirds here lately.  I saw these two hawks (Likely Red-shouldered Hawks) yesterday in two adjacent trees across the street from my home.

I did see a few Palm Warblers, a Yellow-rumped Warbler, and a cute Tufted Titmouse around the yard here on Wednesday,  Feb. 19, 2015.

I also am including a picture of a male Red-winged Blackbird that I spotted at a small marsh up across the road from the horse ranch pond where I often go to do bird watching.  I saw that Blackbird on Feb. 18, 2015.  I do not see Blackbirds here in my yard.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
