The "Other" things you see when Birding


Recommended Posts

River Otters- we  were standing on a dam watching Trumpeter swans, Sandhill cranes and a variety of ducks on one side of the dam. The other side is a long winding marsh with sections of open water. I was taking photos of the marsh, and all of the sudden 4 otters appeared. I wasn't able to get a photo of all 4 at once, the little stinkers were having too much fun swimming and diving.

Indian Blanket, I believe. Not native to the area, but found it growing wild.

Nice! We have them all over the place down here(not right now, but in the spring). They always look really pretty when mixed in with Blue Bonnets!

I'm not THAT old, I just made an old guy mistake. I thought that there was a connection to your "Suzie" name suggestion and the mention of the song stuck in your head. I was drawing a blank on what song you were referring to so I turned to Google for "Suzie" song suggestions. The results I posted just make me look old.....and show that I have better taste in music than you do. :classic_tongue:

I concur

I don't know where else to put this. Skip to about ten minutes.

 

Adaptation at play here.  If the pelican were successful, it could be a catalyst that starts a pelican population that hunt other birds and, given enough time, a new species of pelican.

Having spent most of my life in land locked Colorado there weren't any opportunities to see Whales. Took a little over 4 years to finally see one in Florida. My very first whale of any kind. Humpback Whale Loving it!!!
