A big “Thank you” to Pat, President of the Tampa Audubon, who willingly spent 6 hours with me today birding. Some GREAT views of birds, including the surprisingly elusive (you can hear me, but you can’t see me!) Limpkin.
Highlights of the day were…
The Great Blue Heron trying to figure out how to eat the snake it caught. (not my photo,but it sure looked like this)
An immature Little Blue Heron (again, not my photo)
Swallow-tailed Kite (nope, not my photo!)
The baby Barred Owl. (Nope, not me)
And, of course, my first Limpkin, who soared past us, disappeared, then reappeared to give us lovely, long looks as it ate its preferred food, snail. (N.M.Ph)
