I've slowly been going through all the photos I took in Florida last week, close to 2,000 in all. Still liking the bird photos from Wakodahatchee Wetlands the most, with the birds from the aviary at Butterfly World coming in a close second. Now in the process of trying to identify the birds. Like this little guy with the big yellow feet and striped neck:
here as "A tiny heron, furtive and surpassingly well camouflaged, the Least Bittern is one of the most difficult North American marsh birds to spot." Sounds like I was pretty lucky to see this fellow!
And this pretty bird with the plume on his or her head:
Both places had identifying signs posted, like this one:
I went looking for "duck with orange beak" for this photo
but it was quite easy to find out that these ducks are black bellied whistling ducks, thanks to this post by Kelly of Red and the Peanut (she has some great closeup shots of this breed).
What I didn't notice until I cropped this photo to get a closeup of the ducks was that there was a huge iguana in the grass right behind them, how cool is that??!
