Wildlife Everywhere

Home from our mini vacation in Florida with lots of new birds to add to my lifelist:

Little Blue Heron
what a gorgeous beak.

Sand Hill Cranes
never even looked both ways before crossing the street and walked right in front of us. Guess this is their neighborhood.

and the roseate spoonbill, Great White Egrets, little ones too.
And then there were some other characters along the Myacca River:

It was a great trip.

Kath..I should have realized but didn't that you are a birder... I was, but lost some of my oomph when the kidlets arrived (hard to watch birds with loud and restless boys around!)... Sand Hill Cranes!!! OMG! Roseate Spoonbills! That glorious blue beak..... I see quilts!

Hugs and welcome more snow! Teehee (Ducking and running)

It's spelled Myakka River, just FYI. Great photos!
