The next bird I met, I had no clue what he was. So I sent the picture to my resident bird expert: Faith.
Her answer was, that "he" was a female American Anhinga.
As we were slowly approaching the Anhinga to get a better picture of her, a little slate colored reddish egret flew in right in front of us. I guess She wanted her picture taken too=)
The next day I was tooling around with mother, in the golf cart (one of my favorite activities;) and we spied a couple of Great White Egrets. Very austere birds. ;)
A couple of mornings later I went out front of Grandpa's house, and was startled to find the ground covered with little birdies hopping all over. Some of them I knew were Chipping Sparrows,but the other ones I had no clue. So of course, I sent off the pictures to, you know who, and received back a prompt answer. Pine Warblers!
This handsome little male Pine Warbler, was very brave. He wasn't scared of me at all!
Of course I did see many Mallard ducks in all the ponds and lakes that pocket Florida's landscape, but I was used to them and not very impressed=} I was though when I saw this....
