Waiting In Line, Like Many Of Us

There were two things here.

First the obvious, all the birds were just standing in line. Peaceful, no bickering, several different species.

Second, we can all learn something from these critters.

Well, maybe not. The Snowy Egret was jumping to the head of the line.

Still, we didn’t need to break up any arguments.

These images include 2 juvenile White Ibis, a Snowy Egret, and finally a very quiet Tricolored Heron.

 

Early Feeding

Out the other day we were able to follow ‘white spots’ and get close enough for a few Pelican shots.

Not the best day, actually almost nasty, but no heavy rain.

Getting close to mating season and this is not where they breed. I don’t think there will be many more easy to photograph flocks this year.

Why So Many Ibis ?

For a while I wondered why I had not seen many White Ibis.

It occurs to me that maybe I just wasn’t looking. At least not the right spots.

They are showing up at the nearby rookery. Next question I have is…where will they nest. It’s only a few months away and I would have thought they would be in a nesting area, not here.

If all these setup house here it’s going to be very loud, and busy.
