I don’t think this great white egret is too impressed by this sign.
Just a flock of ibis. No big deal.
This snowy egret landed on the pier just in front of our cabin. He posed for quite a while and I got quite close. They are clearly used to humans taking photos.
Also, he looks a lot more elegant in flight. Just saying.
Seeing that heron in my yard yesterday reminded me I have a lot of photos from Sanibel Island I haven’t yet shared. I also have one video – of a great blue heron. When the fishing boats would come back to the dock they would leave the bait bin open. The birds were clearly aware of this and lined up to snack. We must have watched this guy eat twenty fish! (just off the right you can see the beak of an egret who was waiting for his turn…)
I was walking in our back hallway earlier and spotted a lady northern flicker woodpecker sitting on the ice in our pond having a drink, so I ran and got my camera and tripod to share it with you.
After she had her fill, she shuggled up to the rocks for a nap.
Seriously. Pelicans are just weird.
Oh, just a great blue heron hanging out on a boat at the dock in front of our cabin. No big deal.
Among the many many birds we got to watch rather closely was this great white egret who landed on our roof:
He turned towards us for a while and became rather one-dimensional:
I don’t quite know what happened with “Auto Draft” being published weirdly and I am not even sure what it looks like for other people…
Anyway… during our stay in Sanibel we were on a bay and had a lot of birds to watch. After a couple of days, we decided pelicans are decidedly odd creatures.
