While at the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival
I skipped one of the classes I signed up for to spend the day birding with the gals.
Linda, Melanie and DonnaWe went to Merritt Island NWR
We started out on the Refuge driveStopping on our way for a photo opt with a Great EgretWe drove to the beach…And took a stroll…Fisherman lined the beach…Little Sanderlings chasing food…Jelly fish..looked like beached UFOs A Grackle hanging out at the beach…We then took Gater creek road to see what we could seeWe spied a Wood stork in the grass..So, we stopped to get close up photos..Roseate Spoonbills..A beautiful warm day in Florida…Tropical paradise…We spent at least a half hour watching this Osprey…
who didn’t seem to know how to adjust itself to eat the fish…It finally flew away with its catch…Our last stop for the day was the park behind the college where the festival took place…It was close to sunset….see the Vultures in the trees?
Jeff and I are in Lake Worth now...Have a few birding outings lined up and lots of time will be spent with family here…
Hope you all stay toasty warm…Its 80 here today..and HOT! Almost a bit to hot for me..but I cant complain.. Sending you all a big package of warm…I hope it reaches you soon!
