To Westminster Woods to see Gram. The only bird we saw this hot, sunny afternoon was this Great Blue Heron, who stood on a log in the middle of the lake, its mouth draped open much of the time.
To Hanna Park this morning to ride the trails with spouse and Chris. But before riding, shooting:
Stopped by Nathan Krestul Park on the way home from work. Rain chased me away.
To the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve this morning with spouse, dog, and camera!
At Westminster Woods to see Gram when we spotted this Great Egret:
Earlier today when I was strolling downtown during a break from work, I spotted a juvenile Northern Mockingbird begging in a tree, its gape flanges visible. By and by, a parent appeared to deliver a skinny worm. I watched the parent hunt: its M.O. was to perch on a sign above a patch of grass outside the CSX Building and presently fly down to liberate a worm from the turf.
On the drive from work to Gram’s, I saw a Red-headed Woodpecker fly across the road and alight on a tree. Then I spotted an anole clinging to the trunk of the car in front of me. ELO’s “Hold On Tight” was playing on the radio. And finally a Swallow-tailed Kite flying overhead, at the intersection of Old St. Augustine Road and San Jose Boulevard.
