It's been a little chilly lately, so the manatees are starting to come into the spillway. Here are some pictures from yesterday and today's manatee watches.
I had 17 manatees yesterday, and 13 today. This one had lots of barnacles. They get barnacles when they go from salt water to fresh and are generally harmless.
This is a green heron who flew down to check out my water thermometer. I like this picture because, due to the angle, he looks like he has a googly eye glued to the side of his head. (click the picture to enlarge to see it.)
