And here, I present... a random assortment of photos from birding last month. This warbler above, not sure on the ID- juvenile Palm Warbler, maybe? Very beautiful with that little bit of color! And this one above, pardon the bad photo, but I was thrilled to get a look at a RAIL! Pretty rare find for me. Question is, what Rail? Clapper Rail? That one was taken at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
It hardly seems like time for nesting season quite yet, but the larger birds start early. I took this photo of an active Eagle nest back on January 9th: Spot the nest high up in the middle of the tree? They're giant! These was a Bald Eagle in the nest that was up to something. Feeding chicks? I couldn't tell, but I wish them well!
I drive by the Eagle nest every couple of days to see how they are doing. There are two Eaglets which both seem to be doing okay. I usually stop by on my way home and don't have the camera with me, when I do bring the camera they decide to be shy! Despite the bad lighting, I did snap a shot of one this last time (with parent). They are big!
The Eagle Watch has been pretty uneventful so far...
Eagle's now watching the nest! Time for me to start watching too!
