Just a couple photos from Riverbreeze Park a couple days ago. Nice pier out to the Indian River. Plenty of gulls, pelicans, and this Great Egret that got a nice catch!

Friday night we had thunderstorms, followed by an incredibly windy Saturday, and a freezing cold Sunday. One of those days that while cold is bright and sunny and beautiful! A great day to be out.

Happy New Years Eve! Great day, a cool morning warming up to a high of 76. Clear and breezy. Birds seemed to be everywhere all day!

That turned into a walk to the cow pasture where a Red-tailed Hawk circled with the vultures, and a flock of Robins hopped along the ground. What a beautiful way to end 2011! Fills me with hope for what is to come in 2012.

But now there are flocks of Robins... and much much more to look forward to.
