Red Blossoms And White Birds

There are Oak trees in this swamp where for a short time small red blossoms show. Sunset, white birds, red flowers…

However, the Oaks are on an island in a swamp, close enough for a photographs but certainly limiting.

Of course you also have the Ibis. They love the spot, just not when you want them there.

When they do give you a chance, don’t hesitate. Take the shots.

 

Calm Blue-winged Teals

Not far from the chaos of the swamps and large wading birds these peaceful Teals enjoyed the duck weed, which was everywhere.

The area is thick with cattails, fern, and duck weed.

They will not go hungry around here.

In the past there were also Alligators. Recently none seem to be around. It’s an easy swim/walk to the rookery where I see plenty. The fish must be an easy catch over there.

Egret Makes A Show Of Visiting

This series was taken as a Great Egret decided to drop by two others who were probably just getting close to making a nest together.

Sticks were being passed around but this guy didn’t much care.

There was nothing subtle about the approach.

Of course this behavior causes trouble. Half the time an intruder doesn’t even get a chance to land before the others chase them off.

This guy was lucky and the others ignored him.

 

Juvenile Ibis In A Marsh

The previous article had photographs of adult Ibis in a swamp. Well, this morning young Ibis were in multiple locations in the ACE Basin.

At one point (Ellen took the shots) a large number of young ones were along a muddy canal.

It wasn’t that long ago I mentioned how Ibis were not around.

Guess that’s not the case.
