Least Bttern
This morning I went to Orlando Wetlands Park again and had a pretty good morning.  The biggest highlight was seeing 10 Least Bitterns in the park--that's easily a record for me.  I think my previous record was 6. Some of them were obviously paired, which was also fun to see.

Several Barn Swallows were out, and they are extremely difficult to photograph.  But about four of them decided to perch and pose for us.

Several Snowy Egrets were out fishing, and I suppose we could have watched them do so all day.  I love watching them fly low over the water and pick up fish of the surface mid-flight.

A Crested Caracara was perched where I'd never seen one before.  I normally see them on the Birding Loop, but this one was northwest of it.

I think that Little Blue Herons are most interesting when they are in the process of getting their adult plumage.  There are several in the park that look like this.

I also had fun with takeoffs and landings. I photographed a  Red-shouldered Hawk and a Pileated Woodpecker take off, and I photographed a Wood Stork landing.

  2. Thanks!  It was pretty amazing seeing 10 in one day.  The park is pretty large, and we walked a good 4 miles looking for them, but still, it was a record for me.
