More birds...no more snow please...

I couldn't think of anything but Florida birds today. We had more snow in Bay Village on Saturday...great...

So, today I'm working on identifying all the birds in the photos and editing my favorites. This should take another week due to the fact I have to go to a 'real' job Monday through Friday. In the meantime, here's a few of my favorites to date, with more to follow!

Aren't Anhinga's the oddest bird? This one is at Loxahatchee NWR

This is where I discovered how heavy a Canon 300mm lens is when you're holding it over your head. That's a Brown Pelican flying over the beach in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea by the way.

I never really noticed the color surrounding the Great Blue Heron's eyes before. Taken at Loxahatchee NWR. Fantastic!


That's a Purple Gallinule at Green Cay, if you couldn't tell from this angle.

Very odd, this is the first photo outing that I actually had a hard time getting photos of birds from behind. I apologize. I will work harder from now on. Thank you for your patience.
