Mead Gardens was pretty slow this morning--that is, unless you were hoping to see some grackles. The place was overrun with Common Grackles. I'm guessing at least 100 of them were there. You could also find a Belted Kingfisher, several Eastern Phoebes, Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers and other regulars. Photographically, my best moment was finding a Tricolored Heron in my favorite little corner of the park. Right near the concrete bridge, there are some submerged branches that wading birds and turtles often use. The lighting can often be pretty nice here, and I love finding animals perched on these branches. This morning a Tricolored Heron was there looking awful nice. The lake level must he high, and fewer of the branches were exposed, but this heron flew to three of the exposed branches in search of food.
