I shared the warblers I'd seen at Orlando Wetlands Park. But many other birds were there, and they were also pretty fun to photograph. I think my favorite was a Limpkin that flew up into a tree just so that I could photograph it with a different background than usual. And then there was this Red-winged Blackbird. I often find these guys difficult to photograph, but this one turned out as well as most that I take.
American Coots and Common Gallinules (aka moorhens) are also there. There were many Purple Gallinules there as well. There were some juveniles foraging near the shore.
Herons and egrets were also there in great numbers as usual. This Tricolored Heron was particularly photogenic.
And of course, there were those wonderful Black-bellied Whistling Ducks. They are so numerous in the park. I know of no better place to see or photograph them, and they are lovely birds.

Super shots Scott! I like how the RWBB, with its missing tail and splayed toes, looks like it's trying to be a wader too.ReplyDelete
