Purple Gallinule

Not quite an adult yet.  The color that is does have is nice, though.


Common Yellowthroat

Just as I was starting to leave the Celery Fields (Palmer) yesterday this little guy popped out of the weeds and posed for a minute. The lighting wasn’t great but he seemed so interested in what was happening on the boardwalk that I had to get his photo.


Pine Warbler

Nanday Parakeets

Not a native species here.  They have gone from just a couple at the Celery Fields a few years ago to 70-80 now.



Mottled Duck

Found mostly in Florida and around the Gulf Coast.
