Last week, I visited Corkscrew March. I was fortunate to be able to photograph a couple of birds.
The first is the robin. He’s not up north right now because he’s down here, making the woods pretty. 🙂 The robin may be a common bird, but he’s beautiful, don’t you think? Lovely markings and that gorgeous red breast.
Here’s another shot of him. I like this picture because of the spray of glittering green palm frond behind him.
I was on my way back to the car when I spotted a downy woodpecker in a tree just off the trail. He didn’t seem to mind me being there overmuch. They are small birds, only about 6″ tall. The red on his head is vibrant!
Here’s another woodpecker, this one the red-bellied. Spotted it at R’s, darting around a palm tree. The light was in the wrong quarter, but I still got an acceptable photo.
Back at my house, I spotted a limpkin, walking along the edge of the canal, hunting for apple snails. They keep the snail population from getting out of hand.
Across the canal, the neighbor’s ginger cat was stalking the wild rooftop. 😉 No idea how he got up there, but he was looking for a way down. Did he panic? Nope. He studied the situation at length before finally deciding on his escape route.
At R’s that evening, I strolled down the road and noticed this field of colorful plants. No idea what they are, but they’re beautiful, especially against the green of the palms behind them.
Have a terrific weekend!
