The low water in a nearby marsh gives us a chance at all types locals, not just the alligators. Actually, the last walk we found hardly any gators.
The first shot, a Great Egret, had the gift of a Pied-billed Grebe popping up just as I took a few shots.
Above a female Common Gallinule passed by a palmetto tree stump usually submerged. You can see the water level.
White Ibis are here in some pretty good numbers. In late January most will be a few hundred miles south. Probably running all over highways and byways in Florida. Enough stay here so we are never without a photo op of Ibis.
Last image is a Pied-billed Grebe. With the water low these guys are now less likely to disappear under the surface. They will, but first must paddle over to the right spot.
