We visited Wakodahatchee with the digital camera
over Thanksgiving weekend 2002. It was sunny but pretty cool
in the shade... although there isn't much shade there:-)
|Here's a couple of green herons, looking green.|
Right, a great egret. Click on the image for a larger one.
|Left, a tricolor (Louisiana) heron in action; and right, in stillness (click right for a larger image).|
Note I'm putting these in more-or-less the order we saw them
rather than by genera, although it might not be obvious so far.
These are some old coots. Or maybe young ones, I'm not sure how
to tell after a certain point.
|Here's one I don't think I've ever seen there before. It's a snipe.|
|These two are pretty ordinary birds, who were just posing nice. Per Dr. Scott, they're a boat-tailed grackle and an atypically-marked female red-wing blackbird.|
Here are some ducks in a row. They were actually in a much neater row a couple of times, but they wouldn't stay there while I took the picture.
|These are soras, which I understand tend to be pretty shy and difficult to see, at least in places other than Wakodahatachee.|
This is a purple gallinule, a very pretty bird.
They're pretty common here.
This guy is a glossy ibis. I don't think I've ever seen him before either.
