I wish I got a picture of him in flight! But you can see a little of the yellow and orange on his wings.
Three Wood Storks, an Egret/Heron and a Roseate Spoonbill… and I only had the little waterproof camera with me.
So there’s a story with this one (of course).
I’m driving by and think, “wow, look at all those egrets… on the roof, in the trees, in the bushes, on the lawn…”. So I stop. Of course, when I stop, a neighbour comes out to see what I’m doing. ”Just taking some pix of the birds. I’ve never seen so many in one place like that.”
Well, turns out… the people feed the egrets (so reports the neighbour). ”Bird seed?”, I ask. ”No, they’re meat eaters: hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. Meat”.
I got the feeling the neighbour wasn’t too happy about it.
An Anhinga flock!! We usually see them solo, so this was strange. The single shot is drying his wings after his swim.

The things you see in Walmart parking lots! Pigeons engaged in a mating dance…
