So today, instead of catching up on all the stuff I didn't do yesterday, David and I went out to try to chase the Sacred Ibis that was seen at the Vero Wetlands. On the one hand, I'm a little bummed that we didn't see it. On the other hand, take a look below at the otter eating a Coot that we did see!! This could be one of my favorite series of pix I've ever taken. Click photos to enlarge.
|Weird young Wood Stork. He had green on his beak.|
|Om-nom-nom-noming a Coot.|
|My Coot! You can't has none!|
|Green Heron acting all Bitterny.|
|Stupid Belted Kingfisher. Remains my photographic nemesis |
bird for another day.
|Good to see that there are at least some native Apple Snails still breeding.|
Just so you know - we were at the Viera Wetlands today. We informed the Viera Wetlands Coots about the demise of their Vero Wetlands cousin. They were sad .. but ... life goes on!ReplyDelete
