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.
